On 24 February, we announced the redevelopment of our suite of Cambridge Nationals qualifications. These qualifications will be available to teach from September 2022.
We are therefore withdrawing the qualifications listed below. We will, of course, continue to support and assess these qualifications up to the conclusion of the final assessment series in June 2023.
The final assessment opportunity for all units will be the June 2023 series and a resit only series will be available for the examined units in January 2024.
As the Cambridge National qualification is designed for delivery over a two-year period, the last opportunity for Year 10 students to start a two-year programme is September 2021.
We will update the specifications in line with these changes by the end of April 2021.
We are withdrawing the following qualifications:
We have made the difficult decision not to offer the redeveloped suite of Cambridge Nationals qualifications in Northern Ireland and Wales. This difficult decision was based on the relatively low uptake of these qualifications in this region.
We regret that we will not be able to offer a suite of qualifications that are deliverable in Northern Ireland and Wales, alongside those we are developing for England.
For details of other awarding organisations offering alternatives to these qualifications, please view the Ofqual register, and for further information about qualifications offered in Wales, please visit the Qualifications in Wales website.
