Year 11 and 13 Examinations
Do I Have to do My Examinations?
GCSE and A Level examinations have been cancelled for the summer of 2020.
Instead of examinations, Ofqual have published guidance to schools on what they require us to do to help generate pupils a grade for their GCSE and A Level subjects.
We are still awaiting guidance on what will happen with vocational courses such as BTECs.
Can I Contact My Teacher About My Grades?
You will see in the letter that we cannot share any predicted grades with you.
Once we submit the information they require from us, they exam boards need to go through other checks before they decide on final grades. Please do not ask your teachers for them.
What should I do instead?
We would strongly suggest that pupils continue to try and do work in the subject(s) they hope to study next year so that the transition from Year 11 to Sixth Form or from KS5 to university is not too big.
We are also working on some materials and resources that we hope will help you with this as well as with the final choices you have to make about your next destination.
We will be in touch with more details shortly.
When is Exam Results Day?
The government have announced that exam results will be available as initially planned on Thursday 13 August for A Level results and Thursday 20 August for GCSE results.
We will provide details for how these will be distributed closer to the time when we know what the latest guidance on social distancing is.
