Students are still required to complete the controlled assessment for Speaking, Listening and Communication.  Where these assessments take place in an on-demand format and can be delivered in line with public health guidelines, SLC assessments should continue to proceed remotely.

This qualification is in scope for alternative arrangements and if required can be awarded via an assessed grade from the centre. The adaptation document provides further details on the scope and evidence requirements for this.  

For further information please see the adaptation addendum document below.
