GCSE Exams in Summer 2021 - Will I be taking an exam?

GCSE exams for the 2020-2021 academic year will not take place due to not being able to hold exams and assessments fairly this year as a result of the pandemic. Tutors will be required to submit grades based on their assessment of what learners have shown and are able to do during their course. This is to ensure you are able to move on to your next stage of learning or employment. 

Ofqual have published further guidance around the grading system this year to support you in understanding the new system. To access the guidance please click here.

Exams Update: 4th March 2021

Exams and assessments for these will go ahead and will be delivered in line with social distancing and other safety measures. Alternative arrangements will be available for those who cannot access the assessments.
