An awarding body’s decision to award special consideration will be based on various factors, which may vary from learner to learner and from one assessment to another. These factors may include the severity of the circumstances, and the date and nature of the assessment.
If all or part of a candidate’s work is lost or damaged through no fault of the candidate, please complete the form below and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where a candidate has been fully prepared and entered for one of our qualifications but has encountered exceptional mitigating circumstances beyond their control and is unable to sit any of our set examinations/assessments, please contact our special requirements team. We can advise you of the process and the information required. Based on this information, we may issue a statement of recognition. A statement of recognition records the candidate’s potential qualification grade(s), according to the centre, had our set examinations/assessments been completed.
The statement of recognition is designed to support the candidate’s progression to the next stage of education, training, or employment. It can inform discussions with Further Education/Higher Education institutions, other education providers, and employers, to facilitate progression. The statement of recognition is provided by OCR based on the information supplied by the centre and is not a qualification certificate. This is different to an honorary certificate.
If you think you have a candidate for whom a statement of recognition may be appropriate, please email the special requirements team at email@example.com.
