Exams 2021

To ensure that grades for A Levels, GCSEs, technical and vocational qualifications can be awarded fairly this year, given the disruption to students caused by the pandemic, the government has said that teachers should submit grades to the exam boards based on their knowledge and assessment of their students’ abilities.

Each assessment centre has its own policy on how this will be managed and what parameters will be used, and you can view and download ours below.
