We have provided answers to some common questions below.
The speed at which you can upload a document to Submit for Assessment can be impacted by your internet connection and the size of the file you are trying to upload. We recommend using Handbrake to reduce the size of your files and we have included instructions about how to do this in our administrative guides.
Submit for Assessment shows you which candidates you still need to upload documents for. It hides candidates whose work you have already uploaded. You can change the filter to show all candidates, as shown in the image below:
After you have submitted your documents to us, we send you a confirmation email. This comes from email@example.com We recommend adding this to your email contacts. Check your junk/spam folders if you do not receive a confirmation email.
Submit for Assessment also displays a ‘submitted’ status against the candidates whose documents you have submitted successfully.
You can find component information on your statement(s) of entry, as shown in the image below. You can view your statement(s) of entry on Direct.
If you have missed a deadline for submitting work or a portfolio of evidence we will contact you to tell you what you need to do. Look out for emails from firstname.lastname@example.org you may need to check your junk or spam mailboxes.
If you expect to miss a deadline for submitting work or a portfolio of evidence contact us email@example.com straight away for support and advice.
If your Associate Centre submits marks in Submit for Assessment you need to approve the marks they submit.
You can find information about how to do this in our approving marks factsheet (PDF, 337KB).
Once you have uploaded or ‘dragged and dropped’ a file onto a candidate’s evidence section (for example ‘Evidence 1’) you will see the option ‘Link with other candidates’. If you want to link the file you have uploaded with other candidates, follow the instructions below:
Step 1: click on ‘Link with other candidates’
Step 2: You will see all the files you have uploaded to that evidence section (e.g. ‘Evidence 1’) Choose the file(s) you want to link with other candidates (e.g. the task and/or Rationale Document) then click ‘Next’.
Step 3: Select the candidates you want to link to the task and/or Rationale Document. Click ‘Save’. The files you selected are now linked with the selected candidates and have been added to their evidence sections.

If all candidates are exempt for a component, you do not need to take any further action in Submit for Assessment. If only some candidates are exempt/absent, then the other candidates’ work needs to be submitted. If any candidates are exempt for 0457/03 then you must submit the absences in Submit for Assessment rather than on Direct.
