Information and resources for OxfordAQA Exams Officers

Information about the support we provide for Exams Officers, from online resources to training events.

Centre Services

To access online services and school-specific information, OxfordAQA Exam Officers can log in to Centre Services.

Find out how to register for Centre Services.

Centre Services is where you will find essential Resources, Results services, Teacher Online Standardisation (T-OLS) and more. It has all the centre-specific services you’ll need as an Exams Officer running OxfordAQA’s international qualifications.

These are available as standard:

  • Resources – including, exam past papers, example answers and examiner commentary.
  • Teacher Online Standardisation (T-OLS) – controlled assessment and NEA administration tools.

These are not available as standard – you’ll need to ask your Centre Services administrator for access:

  • Access arrangements
  • Centre details
  • Administration – for centre administrators to manage their staff’s Centre Services access
  • Results section – see how your school, subject, class and individual students have performed
  • Entries – see how your school, subject, class and individual students have performed
  • Key dates
  • Modified papers – for partially sighted candidates
  • Post-results services – request copies of marked exam papers (“access to scripts”) or a review of marking
  • Special consideration – for when a student is disadvantaged or absent from an exam.
OxfordAQA website login

The OxfordAQA website is full of valuable resources to support teachers. Some of these resources are available exclusively to existing OxfordAQA centres, such as detailed teacher guidance packs, past exam papers and mark schemes. To access secure resources, teachers need a login.

If you are an Exams Officer in an approved OxfordAQA school and you have teachers who need to access secured resources, you can request a login for them.

Complete the form here. Please note that this request must be submitted by the school Exams Officer. Note that we cannot grant logins to students.

Exams update email newsletter

We send a monthly round-up for Exams Officers with updates on processes, subjects and policy changes.

If you’d like to subscribe to the newsletter, please get in touch. (Please note this is only available to OxfordAQA Exams Officers and you must provide your centre number in your request).

Fees

Before you can offer OxfordAQA qualifications, you must become an OxfordAQA school. Once you are an approved school, you can make entries for OxfordAQA qualifications. We charge a fee for each exam entry to our qualifications and a small annual fee. For full details of the fees for your specific region, please contact us.
