Lost or damaged work

This relates to coursework and controlled assessment that has been lost or damaged at the school or college. It includes both internally-assessed work (marked by schools or colleges) and externally-assessed work (marked by one of our examiners).

Applications for special consideration in respect of lost/damaged work must be made through e-AQA. We are no longer able to accept the JCQ Notification of Lost Centre Assessed Work form (JCQ/LCW Form 15).

  • Exams officers can request special consideration online through e-AQA, after the deadline for submitting marks provided that the school/college is:
    • responsible for the loss
    • able to verify that the work was completed or partially completed and that the student was monitored while doing the work.
  • The student should reproduce as much of their missing work as possible. When you submit their coursework/controlled assessment marks, the letters 'LCW' should be written to the left of the mark on the Centre Mark Form (CMF) or EDI printout to indicate the loss.

Work that is lost as a consequence of negligence on the part of the student is not eligible for special consideration.
