Year 11 and 13 exams update
The government have just announced an overview of how GCSE and A-Level grades will be awarded to students who are unable to sit the exams. It seems to be a sensible approach. They will use teacher assessments and check them against national data sets. They have also said that there may be an opportunity for students to sit some exams early in the next academic year if they are not happy with their grades. We will look closely at the details which are not due to be released until April and keep you closely informed.
