Update on Awarding Exams Grades

Dear pupils and parents/carers,

As promised we said that as soon as we knew how the exam boards would be awarding you your GCSE and A Level grades this summer that we would pass that information on to you.  I know that some of you have been very anxious about how it would all work.

The information was announced a couple of hours ago, and applies to all of the qualifications you were due to sit this summer, including BTECs, Cambridge Nationals and Technicals etc.

I’ve summarised the information in the PDF below:

Ofqual have also written a letter to you.  Ofqual are the government agency that is in charge of exams and qualifications.

Please don’t ask your teachers what grade they are going to recommend – they will not be allowed to discuss this with you.  

Be reassured that as a school we will work hard to make sure that the process is fair, and that your hard work is recognised.

Have a read of the ‘awarding exam grades‘ PDF first.

Let me know if you have ANY questions at all.

Please look after yourselves and others.

Wishing you all good health.

Miss O’Leary
