Head of Centre declarations
The Head of Centre is required to sign a declaration to finalise the submission of grades. The declaration is part of the submission process in Centre Services.
It will confirm that the grades are a true representation of the students’ performance. If a head of centre is unavailable to do this, it may be delegated to a deputy.
