As artificial intelligence (AI) technology is rapidly evolving, there are many opportunities for its use. However, we also need to ensure the integrity of qualifications is maintained.
We can confirm that, where teachers are responsible for marking assessments, eg for coursework or non-exam assessment, the use of AI as a ‘sole marker’ is not permitted. This means teachers must be able to differentiate accurately and consistently between a range of attainment by students. AI, while a helpful tool in some contexts, is still unproven in other areas.
For each internally assessed unit or component, teachers are required to declare that the work submitted is the candidate's own work, was conducted under the required conditions and that internal standardisation has been carried out.
For our Cambridge Nationals and general qualifications, we have now updated the centre authentication form (CCS160) to confirm that marking was carried out according to the mark scheme and AI was not used as the sole form of marking.
This form should be kept within the centre until all reviews of results, malpractice and appeals have been resolved. This is also a requirement for private candidates.
You can access the form from our Forms finder tool when selecting a qualification and subject with moderated units or components. It is also available in the Assessment > Forms section on Teach Cambridge.
You can use the updated centre authentication form from the January 2024 series onwards.
We are in the process of updating our forms for Cambridge Technicals.
Please note, before submitting their work, each candidate must sign a declaration to confirm the work is their own and any assistance given and/or sources used, including AI tools, have been acknowledged – see our latest subject update for more details.
