The Assessment and Qualifications Alliance, or AQA, is the largest exam board in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It sets the syllabuses for, and holds examinations in, various subjects at both General Certificate of Secondary Education and A Level. The other major English, Welsh and Northern Irish exam boards are OCR, Edexcel, the WJEC and the CCEA.
AQA was formed after the merger of the Associated Examining Board/Southern Examining Group (AEB/SEG), the NEAB|Northern Examinations and Assessment Board (NEAB) and City & Guilds in 2000. The organisation has several offices: the two largest are in Guildford and Manchester.
AQA offers a range of qualifications and services, including GCSE, GCE, GNVQ, VCE and Entry Level. These qualifications remain the most popular and are studied by over three quarters of a million students in a wide range of schools and colleges across the United Kindgdom.
