Latest News for GCSE's and A-Level's 2021
As a tutor and a parent of Year 11, it is a relief to see that the government are beginning to seriously consider how to support our Year 11 and 13 students. New measures announced today are bring introduced to ensure that our students receive fair grades following such a massive disruption in their education.
New measures include:
- students hearing in advance (end of January), some of the topic areas included in the exams to help focus revision
-exam aids will be provided in some of the exams to reduce the need to remember formulas etc
-'backup' exams scheduled in July to enable children who have had to isolate the opportunity to sit the exam
-more generous grading, like the Summer 2020 GCSE's
