The History of Edexcel
Beginning as an awarding organisation following the merger of London Examinations and BTEC in 1996, Edexcel has been helping people succeed in life through learning for over two decades. In 2003, the Edexcel Foundation formed a partnership with Pearson plc to set up a new company called London Qualifications Ltd. London Qualifications Limited changed its name to Edexcel Limited in November 2004. In 2005, Edexcel became the only large examination board to be held in private hands, when Pearson plc took complete control of the company. Today, Edexcel combines a progressive approach with international content, empowering learners to achieve their full potential through GCSEs, IGCSEs, A-levels, functional skills qualifications, and more!
