Exams Update 21st January 2021

As you may be aware, the government have asked OFQUAL, the agency that oversees exams, to launch a consultation on how students in final exam years should be awarded grades now that exams have been cancelled. There are two consultations: one for GCSE, AS and A Level subjects and a second for vocational subjects such as BTECS and Cambridge Nationals. OFQUAL is keen for responses from students, parents and carers and these can be submitted in the form of an online survey.

If you would like to submit a response, the links below will take you to the consultations page on the government website. The consultation documents are there for you to read and a link to the survey is directly below them. You can also find the survey link in the documents themselves, on page 6 for the GCSE document and page 7 for the vocational one. The deadline for submitting responses is 23.45 on Friday 29th January. When we are aware of the outcomes of the consultations, we will let you know.

Exams Update 20th January 2021

Y11 mock exams which were scheduled for the end of February have now been cancelled.

Exams Update 18th January 2021

As is the case for all GCSEs, Pearson exam board have now confirmed that all BTEC exams scheduled from February onwards are now cancelled. This means Y11 students will not be taking exams in BTEC Enterprise, BTEC Digital ICT and BTEC Health and Social Care. The Department of Education has asked OFQUAL, who have responsibility for exams, to launch a consultation looking at how grades will be awarded this year for both GCSE and vocational subjects. When the method of doing this has been agreed, we will let you know

Exams update 8th January 2021

The government have confirmed that all GCSE exams are cancelled this summer. They are currently working with OFQUAL, the exams regulator, on a fair method that will be used to arrive at students’ grades. Once we have further information, we will issue an additional update.

As we have already confirmed, vocational exams will take place as normal next week. Please see update below for further information.

Exams update 7th January 2021

WJEC and OCR exam boards have confirmed that vocational exams in Engineering,  Child Development and Hospitality can go ahead as planned next week. It is therefore our intention to run the exams for the Y11 students studying these subjects. The exam boards have confirmed that any student who is unable to attend, owing to self-isolation for example, will either have the opportunity to sit the exam at a future date or will be treated fairly in terms of the allocation of their grade. We will communicate individual arrangements for each exam over the coming days.
