This is also something that I would be interested in. I haven’t found any timescales for this. Does anybody know or can point us in the right direction please?
Is it qualification / awarding body specific??
The Joint Council for Qualification has ‘General Regulations for Approved Centres’ which includes the registration of students. https://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/general-regulations
Individual awarding bodies may have their own requirements as to when students must be registered.
