Tech-level administration

Information for exams officers who are managing Tech-level qualifications.

Please note: you no longer need to use Gateway to process Applied Generals qualifications. You can now process these through e-AQA, as per our other general qualifications.

These centre guides have all the information you'll need to manage your qualifications:

Apply to become an approved centre

You need to be an approved centre to enter students for our qualifications. Make sure you become an approved centre before you start teaching a course.

Fees, invoices and how to pay

You'll need to pay registration fees for our Tech-level qualifications. If you're a private, independent or non-UK centre, you'll also need to pay an application fee. More information is available on the fees page.

You must pay either by BACS (bank transfer) or by cheque, at the same time that the application is returned to us. Read our invoices and how to pay policy to find out more.

Vocational Gateway

You can register students, make entries and manage results online via the Vocational Gateway. You need to log in to this service – you'll automatically receive your username and password when your centre has registered to run our Tech-level qualifications.
