Online Sample Assessments

Our sample assessments are available in-browser and are accessible using a weblink. There is no need to schedule or use a keycode. 

All content within the sample assessments is modelled on live assessments. Mark schemes for all sample papers are provided to allow centres to mark on completion. This allows you to identify learners’ strengths and weaknesses to ensure individualised skills plans can be made using the outcomes of the practice assessments. 

In-browser practice assessments allow learners to gain familiarity with the NCFE onscreen platform. Please note that these tests are simulation only, and therefore learners will not be able to fully complete the uploading of documents to the platform, as they will in relevant tasks when sitting a Live assessment. 

Note-If you wish to mark learner responses from an in-browser practice assessment, responses will need to be captured at the end of the sitting or screenshots throughout to facilitate this. Any learner responses inputted into an in-browser assessment cannot be retrieved once the browser has been closed. 

You may also wish to consider Skills Forward initial assessment and diagnostic assessment as a tool to support your learner’s journey.
