What is AQA?
AQA is an examination body that offers assessments to schools in the United Kingdom. It is independent of the UK government but is regulated. AQA also funds research into education policy and practice to continually improve the quality of examinations.
History of AQA
AQA was formed in 1996 from the merger of multiple examination boards. The predecessor boards of AQA date back to 1903, when they were founded by major British universities. Today, AQA is responsible for over half of all GCSE and A level examinations administered every year.
