Examination subject update
As you may have seen, details were published today of how grades will be awarded to students taking GCSEs, AS levels and A levels. Details for how vocational and technical qualifications will be awarded this summer will follow.
Your child should receive a letter today on this subject from Sally Collier, who leads Ofqual, the organisation which oversees exams and qualifications in this country. That letter outlines the process, but I also wanted to ensure you heard from me today so that you understood how grades will be awarded to students this summer. You can of course also ask me any questions if anything is not clear.
Your child’s teachers will provide assessed grades in each subject they are taking. These assessments will be based on what the teacher believed each student would have achieved had they sat exams this summer, and on a range of evidence.
