Information for schools and colleges on how to record and submit marks for centre-assessed work.
Informing students of their centre-assessed marks
Students must be told the mark given by their school or college for a centre-assessed component. Schools and colleges are required to have a process in place for students to appeal their marks. This process must be completed before submitting marks to us, which must take place by the published deadline.
More guidance is available on the non-exam assessment page of the JCQ website.
Deadlines for mark submission
The deadlines for submitting marks are summarised in the table below, or see our deadlines finder.

How to submit marks
For most subjects you’ll need to submit marks online, using either e-AQA Centre Marks Submission (e-Subs) or Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).
There are some exceptions, including GCSE, AS and A-level Physical Education. See these pages for more information:

- How to submit PE spreadsheets.
In addition to submitting marks, you still need to send us your students' work.
However you submit, please help us to ensure your students' results are accurate. Make sure you check that:
- the mark totals are correct on the candidate record form
- for each student, the total mark from the candidate record form is correctly submitted online.
