No adaptations have been applied to this qualification other than remote external quality assurance.
Students will need to prepare a portfolio of evidence. We believe that the flexibilities which centres already have with respect to the types of evidence they may use to meet assessment criteria are sufficient to mitigate Covid-related risks.
