GCSE, AS and A Level Examinations 2021
Education Minister, Kirsty Williams has announced that there will be no end of year exams for learners taking GCSEs, AS levels or A levels. Grades will be awarded through a Centre-Determined Grade model. AS grades awarded in 2021 will not count towards 2022 A Level qualifications.
Between now and the summer, teachers will continue to teach as much subject content and skills as possible to allow pupils to continue with their education journey. They will also use a range of assessments to form a fair conclusion of a learner's final grade. This could include specially adapted past papers; practical assessments and coursework. The coursework deadline has been removed, but teachers will be encouraged to use the work completed as a part of the process.
"THE PARENTS' GUIDE TO..." (Click on the Link)
This is a superb website that offers top quality downloadable resources to help GCSE/A-Level pupils (and their parents) work efficiently and safely towards their qualifications…during a global pandemic.
We ALL need to heed the advice that they give in their booklets…!
Although the resource refers to schools in England, the information in their guides is as relevant to us in Wales as it is to our English neighbours.
