Assessment in the Welsh language is available for the following qualfications:
These qualifications are only available to centres in Wales.
No further qualifications, including reformed Entry Level, GCSE (9–1), AS or A Level subjects will be available for assessment in Welsh.
When making entries, please note that the examined units have a specific entry option for assessment in Welsh. Please ensure you use the correct codes for both estimated and final entries (see the Entry Codes booklet). For assessment in Welsh, the entry code is suffixed with ‘W’.
If a candidate entered for the Welsh option decides on the day of the exam to answer the English version of the paper (or vice versa), they will be classed as a pirate candidate. You need to amend the entry to the correct option – standard late entry fees will apply.
There are no specific entry option codes for Welsh for the Cambridge National in ICT internally assessed units. You should just choose the entry option for the appropriate moderation method (see Stage 2: Entries for more details). Your allocated English-Welsh bilingual moderator will be able to moderate all the work from your centre, even if different candidates have used different languages.
We do not provide any assessment materials for the internally assessed units in Welsh. Model assignments are available in advance on the qualifications pages of the OCR website and centres will need to make their own arrangements for translation into Welsh.
