The Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA) is the UK's leading Awarding Body responsible for around half of all GCE A-level and GCSE exams taken by students in the UK. Together with a range of other examinations, this represents around 3.5 million exams at approximately seven thousand centres per year.
With offices in Manchester, Guildford and Harrogate, we are a non-profit making educational charity with the sole purpose of contributing to the education of young people and other learners. In our approach to developments in examinations and qualifications, our prime focus is on educational and assessment quality. We also have as our priority the needs of individual students to ensure that their achievements are fairly assessed and properly recognised.
We play a major role in research and policy development working in partnership with schools and colleges as well as within the wider educational and policy arena and have an internationally respected Research department that is regularly commissioned by our regulator. AQA's research is therefore essential in maintaining standards, as well as informing and influencing educational policy.
We participate keenly in policy debate particularly in development of the educational curriculum of the future.
