Due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent school closures, the government has announced that this year’s summer examinations, including A Levels, GCSEs and other qualifications, have been cancelled. The government has provided guidance on how grades will be awarded for these examinations, which can be found here. We are currently waiting for further information and will update this page as soon as it is available.
