Q1: What is Unique Candidate Identifier (UCI)?
A unique candidate identifier (UCI) is a reference that's unique to a candidate and lasts for the duration of their study career. It's used to aggregate unit results for modular exams. Without it, candidates may not be given their full results. It can be found in the Statement of Entry and the Provisional Statement of Results. For the first time test taker, the UCI will be created by the centre and please input “NA” in the registration form. While for the other candidates, please keep using the previous UCI in all the exam session.
Q2: What is cash-in?
The cash-in process is used to aggregate the candidate’s unit scores to obtain the overall grade for the qualification. No grade can be issued unless the appropriate cash-in code is entered. For the general cash-in rule, the exam board will maximize the qualification grades automatically. For more details about Math cash-in rule, please refer to the official information below, https://qualifications.pearson.com/content/dam/pdf/International%20Advanced%20Level/2013/Forms%20and%20administration/ial-mathematics-rules-guidance-for-centres.pdf
Q3: How to deal with the time clash between different exams?
With the same exam series, there may be different scenarios of exam timetable clash:
1) For timetable clash between multiple subjects of Pearson Edexcel exams registered at our centre, we will make re-arrangement accordingly. Candidates should refer to the Confirmation Letter for the final timetable. If there is any timetable clash between two exams, one of them will be rescheduled for a different time on the same date. Candidates sitting these two exams will be under full centre supervision between exams, during which time they will not be permitted to use mobile phones nor any other electronic devices or communicate with the other candidates.
2) We are unable to make any rearrangement for timetable clash between Pearson Edexcel exams registered at our centre and other exams (e.g. Cambridge International). Candidates should avoid any timetable clash before registering for exams.
Q4: Could I register at different centres at the same time?
Within the same exam series, candidates can register for the exams of different subjects at different centres, but not the same subject at different centres. Please also note that if you register for exams at different centres within the same exam series, it may lead to problems like failure to rearrange timetable clash. Therefore, registering for all exams at one test centre is highly recommended.
Q5：Are my results of each unit and qualification only valid for a set number of years?
All the results and qualification remains valid indefinitely.
Q6: Will the statement of results and certificate show all my passed results?
Only the score of each unit registered in current session, the grades of AS/A-Level and the score of each unit cashed in to AS/A-Level will be displayed on the Candidate Provisional Statement of Results. If you are absent, the “X” is displayed only which indicates no result. As to the certification, it only displays your final grade of certain subject awarded in the current session.
