COVID-19 and 2020-21 Exams: Following the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the UK government has decided that the Summer 2021 examination series will not go ahead as planned. Instead, teachers will determine your grades, based upon a range of evidence on content you have been taught across the course of study, which will be internally quality assured by the school. These results will then be reviewed by the exam boards before awarding the final grades that reflect your performance and allow you to confidently progress to the next stage of your education or into employment.

A series of FAQs for students and parents on grading of GCSEs and other qualifications in summer 2021 can be accessed here

More information about the awarding of grades this summer can be found in the JCQ document “Guidance for students, parents and guardians: GCSEs and AS/A Levels in England. Summer 2021”: https://www.jcq.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/JCQ-Guidance-for-Students-and-Parents-on-Summer-2021.pdf)
