Student Advisory Group

Our Student Advisory Group (SAG) gives young people who are still in school, a voice in the exam system.

The group, made of 15 selected students, normally meets three to four times a year, and provides us with students’ insights and perspectives on key areas of assessment, such as the use of technology and the design of question papers - helping us to make important decisions about the future of exams.

Chair of the group, Alison Chang, said:

“It’s such an exciting privilege to chair the student advisory board. I’m aware of how important our work can be, as a student voice speaking directly to the nation’s largest exam board, and hope to maximise what we students can get out of it. It’s relieving, sharing this responsibility with a community of bright, passionate advocates, and for such a supportive exam board. The staff at AQA truly listen to our insight, and the actions taken upon it testify for their dedication in supporting students. I look forward to what we can accomplish in the SAG going forward!”

Supporting our student community

This group will help us shape the ways we listen to the school and college student community, and in return students will gain valuable experience and develop skills that will help them in their future careers.

Student Chloe Elliot said: “Being on the student advisory group has given me a valuable insight into how exam boards work and helped me meet likeminded students.”
