Exam policy generator
The Exam policy generator (EPG) helps exams officers to quickly and easily generate and customise a robust exam policy.
The EPG tool takes the hard work out of creating an exam policy. It asks you a series of questions about typical exam policy scenarios and allows you to select from a range of answers. The tool then generates your customised exam policy as a Word document that you can edit further if you need to.
It is important to note that the EPG is different from the Consortium exam policy generator (CEPG) tool:
- the EPG develops an exam policy for your own centre covering a number of qualifications
- the CEPG formalises agreements between exams offices across a Diploma consortium.
Specific versions of the policy for 11-16, 11-19 and further education centres have been created so it will only include content relevant to your centre.
The end product is a robust exams policy for you and your senior leadership team to sign up to.

Hints and tips
- Make sure you select the correct type of centre (11-16, 11-19 or FE/sixth form) as the questions vary depending on which you select.
- Ensure you click on 'save and logout' before using the links on the left of the screen otherwise you will lose the data entered.
- When you return to use the tool to complete your report, you will be asked to log in using the PIN you were sent by email following the registration process. Each time you log in you will be taken back to 'The Policy Purpose' page.
- Write concisely in the free text boxes, as content from these will form part of the final document.
- To create the final report you'll need a version of MS word '97 or later.
- For more hints, tips and further guidance have a look at our user guide.
- You can also review the question and answer options to help you collate all of the information you need before you use the EPG tool.
