"Despite the exam boards' efforts, we think this year's non-exam assessment in GCSE computer science will be compromised.
"We think there is a real - and significant - risk that, left unchecked, results in next summer's computer science GCSEs will not provide a fair reflection of every student's knowledge, skills and understanding.
"We also think that the likely extent of malpractice may well compromise exam boards' ability to set grade boundaries and issue results on time. Similar problems are likely to arise in future years."
Due to the ease with which students are able to cheat online, the regulator believes that it may no longer be possible to include coursework marks in a student’s final grade.
Instead, students would be asked to continue completing the assessments, but would not receive any credit for it.
Simon Peyton Jones, of the British Computing Society, said: “[We have] raised with Ofqual some serious concerns about the non-examined assessment regime for GCSE Computer Science, and are pleased to see the focused attention on the problem that has resulted.
