Submit for Assessment is unavailable between 18:00 UTC Sunday and 01:00 UTC Monday.
We apologise for any inconvenience to schools who may want to use Submit for Assessment during these hours.
The timetable for submitting portfolios of evidence and their accompanying Rationale Documents will be aligned with the exam timetable for June 2022, so that we can mark them at the same time.
You will be able to submit portfolios of evidence from 2 May 2022. For some syllabuses, portfolios of evidence will need to be submitted to us by 18 May. Syllabuses examined later in the exam series will have later submission deadlines. View the full list of submission deadlines (PDF, 154KB).
Each centre must complete a Rationale document for each syllabus, explaining in detail how the portfolios of evidence have been compiled for each candidate. We will ask you to submit a digital copy of the Rationale document to us alongside your candidates’ portfolios of evidence.
You can download the rationale document template below. You must complete this and then submit it using Submit for Assessment. We can accept submissions in Word or PDF.
