Initial guidance on changes to the examination systems for 2021
Today we have had some initial guidance on changes to the examination systems for 2021.
There are more details to come, but this is what we know so far:
Pupils will have some advance notice at the end of January for some topics which will be covered in the exams
In some exams pupils will be provided with additional resources e.g. formula sheets, to cut down on how much material they need to memorise
There will be some addition 'back up' exams in July for pupils who have missed papers due to Covid related issues
There will be consideration of grading to reflect the disruption pupils have experienced
We will write to you with further information when we know more.
