Here are some of the comments we have received from exams officers about our support:

The Exams Office also works in partnership with the major awarding bodies. We have signed an agreement to work closely with OCR, which includes reduced membership to The Exams Office for all of OCR's centres.
OCR have released the following statement about our partnership;
'As part of OCR's commitment to providing high quality support to the teaching and exam support staff in centres, we are pleased to announce we will be working in partnership with The Exams Office. This partnership will extend the existing range of support available to exam support staff and will help to ensure that this key role is fully informed in an ever changing environment. We are excited to be collaborating with The Exams Office and look forward to the year ahead.'
