Our archives are moving!

Cambridge Assessment is moving to a new, purpose-built Cambridge head office, Triangle, which will allow us to better serve our customers. In order to prepare for the move, we will have to restrict the Archives Service for a short time. This will mean we won’t be able to accommodate visiting researchers and may take longer to respond to enquiries. In addition, during the period of the actual move (likely to be in April/May time) we will not be able to respond to any enquiries. We thank you for patience while we move and look forward to handling your enquiry or visit at our new home later this year.

Visiting our archives and enquiries

Cambridge Assessment Group Archives are in Cambridge and researchers are welcome to consult documents in person, by appointment, with no access charge. As well as viewing archive documents, the reading room also contains some reference documents including examination question papers from 1951 to 2006, annual reports and statistics and literature about educational assessment.

Some archive catalogues are available to view online via the Janus archive project - a single point of networked access to the catalogues of archives held throughout Cambridge.

If you have an enquiry or would like to visit the archives in person please send us an email or contact archives staff at the following address:

Cambridge Assessment Group Archives
1 Hills Road

Archive staff are unable to carry out detailed searches for enquirers. Photocopies may be supplied, subject to copyright and condition of document, and are charged at 50p per A4 page subject to a minimum charge of £5.

Requesting a copy of a syllabus or specification

If you require a copy of a past syllabus, this can be supplied and is subject to a search and copy fee. Please contact the Group Archives at for advice.

Research Matters

Research Matters is our free biannual publication which allows us to share our assessment research, in a range of fields, with the wider assessment community.
