Summer 2023 Exam Entry Codes

We're aware that certain Awarding Organisations have revised the entry codes on offer for the June 2023 summer exam series, in a similar way to revisions made in the summer of 2022. If you attempt to make entries for an entry code that is not in use for summer 2023, you will find that you are unable to select a 'Series' as part of the entry workflow. In order to make your entries, you'll need to add the correct entry code to your Qualification Offering page.

Which Awarding Organisations have made changes?

So far, we are aware of these changes to the usual entry codes for:

  • AQA
    • You may find that some entry codes no longer have a letter at the end:
      • Design and Technology GCSE (8552E => 8552)
      • Music GCSE (8271E => 8271)
      • Photography GCSE (8206C => 8206)
  • Pearson
    • History GCSE (Option codes begin with 1HI0 this summer) - we recommend using their History Option Code Calculator if you're unsure of the option code to use!

How can I check the correct entry codes?

We'd always recommend consulting the awarding organisations' entry code manuals to find the correct codes, and these can be found at the following links:

  • AQA
  • Pearson (you will need to select the desired manual from a list of qualification types).
  • WJEC (click on the link for 'Entries Procedures and Coding Booklet' to download the manual).
  • OCR

What do I need to do to add the correct codes?

You'll just need to head to your Qualification Offering page and add in the correct entry code via the '+Add new' button. For linear qualifications (where the Award and Unit share the same entry code), be sure to tick both the Award and Unit when adding in the new code.
