Our priority is on providing the best possible support and service through these unprecedented times - for example in providing schools, colleges and parents with a range of our most effective teaching and learning resources free of charge.
We are working hard with the Department for Education, Ofqual and other exam boards to define the approach to providing students with grades this summer and don’t yet fully understand the impact on our costs. Once we do, any savings that we make will be passed back to you.
Today’s announcements by Ofqual give further details on how grades will work in the coming months and potential arrangements around additional series. You can find more information here.
It is important that the entry process remains the same as in previous years and, in order for students to receive a grade, they must be entered for qualifications, as normal. We will be back in touch as soon as we are able to confirm more.
Thank you for bearing with us through these complex changes.
Rod Bristow, President, Pearson UK & Global Online Learning
