Exam Information

COVID-19 & Summer Examinations

The examinations regulator, Ofqual, has published further information on how examination grades are to be awarded to GCSE and A Level candidates this summer.

Here is a link to the letter from Sally Collier, Chief Regulator of Ofqual.

We now understand that the award of GCSE and A Level grades will be a two-stage process:

  1. The Academy will be required to submit to the examination board for each GCSE and A Level candidate, in each subject, a centre assessment grade. This centre assessment grade must reflect our fair, reasonable and carefully considered judgement of the most likely grade a student would have achieved if they had sat their exams this summer, as normal.The Academy will also be required to place all its candidates, for each subject, in a rank order.
  2. In order to ensure the final grades awarded are as fair as possible, the exam boards will standardise the judgements across different centres. They will use a statistical methodology developed in conjunction with Ofqual and will occur only when all grades have been submitted. Examination boards will then decide to uphold the grades awarded by the Academy, to reduce them or to increase them.
