GCSE examinations update
We understand how unsettling the past few weeks have been since the announcement that all GCSE examinations are cancelled this summer. Today, the Department for Education and Ofqual have provided more concrete guidance to schools, colleges, parents, carers and students in relation to the calculation and awarding of grades.
All students who were due to sit GCSE mathematics or English language examinations this summer can be reassured that the College has reviewed the guidance for schools and colleges thoroughly and we are confident that all students will achieve the grade their whole year efforts deserve had teaching, learning and examinations been fully completed this academic year.
We are also confident that no student will be unfairly disadvantaged in relation to their next steps, whether this be progression to the next level of qualification internally, externally, university or your personal endeavours during this time of uncertainty.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank students for their patience during this time, for updates from the Department for Education and Ofqual please see the linked documents below.
