“Amid all this complexity, it’s the individual student who’s most important. It’s fairness for them that is paramount and it’s their life chances which are dependent on us getting it right.”

Ben Jones, Head of Standards, AQA

Ben and his team make sure students get the right results

Our Head of Standards, Ben Jones, is an integral part of our Centre for Education Research and Practice (CERP).

The work of Ben and his team helps ensure that you can be confident in our awarding each exam series. With decades of experience in education assessment you can trust them to do right by you and your students.

CERP’s expert contribution helps us to make sure that on results day students get the right results.

They do this by supporting the awarding process that takes place after exams have been marked. It’s their job to make sure that senior examiners have all the data and statistical information they need to make an expert, reliable judgement about where the grade boundaries should be. They guarantee that standards are comparable, year on year, so that no matter which paper students sit, or when, they are graded fairly.
