Exam Information

COVID-19 & Examinations

The Secretary of State for Education, Gavin Williamson, wrote to Ofqual on 13 January to request a joint consultation on alternative arrangements for exams cancelled, based on teachers’ assessment for student qualifications this year.  The letter also confirmed that scheduled exams for vocational qualifications will no longer take place in February and March 2021.

In light of the information released as part of the consultation, we can now confirm that the summer examinations for BTEC will also not go ahead.

The government has said that the Education Secretary will work with Ofqual to put in place alternative arrangements, though we are yet to establish what these arrangements are. The important thing for students at this point, is to continue working hard and to the best of their abilities. We should not expect that all exams in the summer will be cancelled, simply that they may not go ahead in the standard way. It may well be that every single piece of work counts towards their assessment, or indeed students may be required to sit additional mock exams when they return.
We await more information and guidance.

If you have any queries regarding examinations, please contact the Data and Examinations Department on datateam@hammersmithacademy.org
