How students will be graded 2021

As I’m sure you are aware GCSE, AS and A Level exams will not be going ahead this summer.

Therefore, teachers will determine grades. Students will only be assessed on what they have been taught rather than all that they have missed.

The government believe the teachers know their students best and so they will be able to accurately grade them so they can progress to the next steps of their education or career. Fairness is at the heart of the systems designed to replace the exams.

Teachers are using a range of evidence, which could include mock exams, coursework and other work completed as part of a student’s course, such as essays or in-class tests.

Additionally, exam boards provided optional sets of questions for teachers to use to help them gather evidence. Teachers can select groups of questions that reflect what they have taught.

Teachers will submit their grades to exam boards by Friday 18 June 2021.
Exam boards will then check the evidence on which grades are based, for a range of students/subjects in a sample of centres.
