Examinations

Friday 3 April 2020 update

Following the decision to close schools and not go ahead with this summer’s exams, the government has announced more details of how grades will be awarded this summer.

Please read the important letter (below) released today by Ofqual regarding GCSE, AS and A Level grading. There is no further news at this point with regard to BTEC and Cambridge Technical qualifications and we will update you as soon as we receive further information.

Please note two key messages from Ofqual in their letter to you:

  1. Please don’t ask your teachers, or anyone else at your school or college, to tell you the grades they will be sending to the exam boards or where they have placed you in the order of students; they will not be allowed to share this with you.
  2. Our over-riding aim in this is to be fair to students this summer and to make sure you are not disadvantaged in your progress to sixth form, college, university, apprenticeships, training or work because of these unprecedented conditions
