Examinations

Following the most recent exams update (26 March 2020), we are still waiting for more detailed information. However the latest news from the government is that they intend to release details on how grades will be awarded next week. This will include what both you and school need to do in order to ensure the grades are a fair reflection on everyone. Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) will set out a process that will provide a grade to each student. They are working with all of the exam boards to make sure that no one is at a disadvantage. They will be asking your teachers to submit their predicted grades. In order to do this, teachers will need to take into account mock exams, assessments and other evidence to support the grade. They are also planning on giving you the opportunity to sit an exam in the future if you do not agree with the grade you are awarded. As soon as we have more information we will let you know. Please encourage the students to keep working. Keep well and stay safe.
