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, Victoria Wong, said:

“Participating in the SAG has been an all-round incredible experience over the past two years. I am grateful to have met so many wonderful like-minded young people who share the same enthusiasm for student advocacy, as well as the attentive AQA staff who have taken precious time out of their day to really engage us. It speaks volumes of AQA’s commitment to supporting and listening to students. Having this opportunity to speak up for those who aren’t necessarily being heard means a great deal to me, especially during the pandemic when every student’s life has been turned upside down.”

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.”
