Updated 6 July 2021

Our main VCRF information page explains the new regulatory framework and how our qualifications are grouped into the relevant categories.

As previously communicated in the AIM clinics, we are on track to be releasing the results to centres for the Level 3 Diploma/Extended Diploma in Games, Animation and VFX as anticipated prior to the 10 August A-Level results deadline and these will be available to you by 31 July 2021. As per usual you will be able to access these via the quartz portal. We will also be providing a CSV file you can download from the portal.
A blank template of this file will be available this week to download so you can match the fields to your systems.
