Ofqual sets out details for schools, colleges, students, parents & carers on how GCSEs and A levels will be awarded following the cancellation of this year’s exams.
Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) is the government department that regulates qualifications, examinations and assessments in England.
Since the Secretary of State for Education announced that the 2020 exam series in England would be cancelled to help fight the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), Ofqual have been developing a process which fairly recognises students’ work and makes sure they get their grades in time to progress.
Today, Friday 3 April, Ofqual have set out details about how GCSEs, AS and A levels will be awarded this summer and published further guidance for teachers, students, parents and carers.
A copy of Sally Colier's, Ofqual's Chief Regulator, letter to all GCSE, AS and A level students this summer is below along with the guidance for teachers, students, parents and carers.
School staff will read the guidance carefully and use their extensive professional experience to provide the information needed by the deadline that has been set.
