The Instructions for conducting examinations (OCR ICE) has been updated and the 2017/18 version is now available on the OCR website. These regulations are applicable to the externally assessed components of Functional Skills and Digital Employability qualifications. A list, including the code and title, of these qualifications is provided at Appendix 12 of the document.
Any centre delivering these qualifications must ensure they have a copy of the 2017/18 version available in their centre and exam venue(s), and that all staff involved in the delivery of the qualifications are aware of and adhere to these regulations.
A summary of differences between this version and last year's version is provided at the start of the current OCR ICE and changes are highlighted throughout in yellow.
One additional regulation of particular note is the requirement for candidates to remove their watches and place them on their desks, prior to starting an examination.
The OCR ICE is valid up to and including 31 August 2018. If regulatory changes are made before 31 August 2018 these will be issued as addenda.
