Generating the sample

Details of how to construct the sample of evidence will be provided with the selections.

Centres will continue to pick the units at each level, depending on the evidence available, and identify the candidates to include in the sample. You should provide a sample of candidates at each selected level, if you are entering any candidates for the units.

Please note that we may request that centres provide evidence from specific candidates, rather than the centre selecting the sample. If applicable, we will provide details of this in advance.

Please visit for further information.
