Edexcel was the first of the three unitary awarding bodies to
be established to offer both academic and vocational
qualifications, following the Stafford Review of exam standards
in 1995. Edexcel was formed in 1996 by the merger of the
Business & Technology Education Council (BTEC),
the country’s leading provider of vocational qualifications, and
the University of London Examinations & Assessment
Council (ULEAC), one of the major exam boards for GCSEs
and A levels.
The Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA) came
into existence in April 2000 following the merger of the
Associated Examining Board and the Northern Examinations
and Assessment Board and is the largest of the three English
unitary awarding bodies.
OCR was formed in 1998 from the University of
Cambridge Local Examination Syndicate and RSA, which
means that OCR offers an extremely broad range of
qualifications, with the integrity, quality and assurances that
you would expect from an organisation with such a respected
heritage. Over 600 staff work for OCR on sites in Cambridge,
Coventry, Birmingham and in six Regional Offices.
