Exams 2021

Summer 2021 Exam Update

Following the Ofqual update published on Thursday 25 February, it has been confirmed how qualifications will be awarded in 2021. 

As a result of the disruption caused by the pandemic, the government has decided that many exams and assessments cannot be held this year in a way which is fair. 

All parts of the educational system are working together to make sure that students are still able to get their grades and progress, whether that is continuing with education or training or entering employment.

Please carefully read the infographics from Ofqual. These provide information on how qualifications are expected to be assessed and graded this year. 

Please be aware consultations are still continuing between education providers and awarding organisations. Full details on the specifics for each qualification will shortly be published and further communication on these will be shared. 

If you have any further queries, please contact your tutor in the first instance.
