4. For those studying GCSES, how will my GCSE’s be graded? If I can not sit my GCSE exams this year and therefore do not meet the entry requirement for next year’s course, will this circumstance be taken into consideration?

We understand that GCSE Maths and English awards will be based on a teacher assessment of work to date, and no exams will be scheduled for this summer. We have circulated a letter from Ofqual explaining the process to students and parents (download here).

We are working with our FE partners to ensure student GCSE awards are finalised inline with government requirements and that students are not disadvantaged by the current situation.

We also understand that the government are planning an opportunity for exam resit in Autumn (details to be confirmed).

Both in cases of progression within FE and onto HE student individual circumstances will be taken into consideration.
