Information for Candidates

The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) provides information which is intended for all candidates undertaking any formal qualifications in the UK. The rules outlined in these documents are set by the JCQ on behalf of the 7 largest providers of qualifications in the UK. Standish Community High School strictly adheres to the rules; we highly advise students familiarise themselves with them so as not to jeopardise their grades. The guidance provided by the JCQ gives students a clear indication of what is proper conduct with regards to written exams, coursework and other forms of assessment as well as how certain behaviour on social media may have a negative outcome.
