What's the role of Qualifications Wales?

We monitor and scrutinise the entire process, including paper setting, marking and the awarding of grades.

Before the award of a qualification is confirmed, the awarding body must report their proposed outcomes to us. If the overall outcomes are different to what we would expect, we ask the awarding body for an explanation. 

If we are not satisfied, we can ask the awarding body to look again at the award or to conduct additional analysis to confirm its proposed award.
