This section provides information regarding our e-submission platform. It covers what it is, what are the benefits of using e-submission, which subjects must be submitted by e-submission and where to find guidance on the process.

What is e-submission?

E-submission is the process of submitting candidates’ work in an electronic format for moderation or assessment. We use SURPASS, a secure, web-based platform for this process.

L Benefits of e-submission

Submitting candidates’ work electronically using our secure portal offers centres several benefits including:

  • Digital submissions
    • removes the chances of submitting corrupted CDs/DVDs
    • no longer having to manage the creation of several discs for submission
  • Secure upload
    • no need for physical postage, removing the need to track packages or chase lost parcels
  • Extended upload period
    • allows for electronic uploads to be made across several sessions (during the designated period)
    • e-submissions can be made anytime during the upload period, allowing centres to upload at a convenient time
  • Straightforward administration
    • no specialist IT knowledge is required
    • submission merely requires a computer, internet connection and a list of samples which will be submitted

  • Simplified monitoring
    • submitting via e-submissions means that we receive your candidates' work immediately in a safe, secure manner
    • the portal clearly displays which samples have been submitted, making it simpler to identify any material that is yet to be submitted
