It [Surpass] really has given us a wonderful opportunity to be more creative, to look at new ways of testing, and to look at new ways of achieving our goals... making it more interesting for students and making it much more engaging.

WJEC have pushed the boundaries of onscreen summative assessment, creating some engaging and innovative question content which has been delivered in high stakes summative assessments.


We chose to work with Surpass as it had a great reputation with our Centers and they provide a lot of flexibility in the way exams can be set up and delivered, allowing us to offer a broad range of assessment options. We’ve particularly found their online help and support really useful, which includes on-screen prompts which are very easy to navigate.
