The UK government has announced that UK schools will close and that exams will not be held in May and June. Our focus is now on supporting learners to achieve the qualifications they need to progress to the next stage of their lives.
For students and teachers that were preparing for exams, we have been working around the clock with the Department for Education and the other exam boards to define the detail of how the Government’s plan will work.
More information on this has been released by Ofqual, setting out details about how GCSEs, AS and A Levels will be awarded this summer along with further guidance for students and parents. These will be updated frequently as more information becomes available.
We are still working with the Department for Education, Ofqual and the other exam boards to understand the implications of the current context for BTECs and other applied general qualifications and will communicate with learners as soon as we can.
Thank you for your ongoing patience and support as we continue to work as quickly as possible to provide you with more details.
