Response to yesterday’s announcement on exam results

Commenting on the decision to use teacher assessed grades for GCSE’s and A levels this year Jenny Coles, ADCS President, said:

“Too many young people who have already lost the opportunity to sit their exams because of Covid-19 have faced days of uncertainty and worry about their futures. Ofqual and the government have made the right decision to base A level and GCSE results in England on teacher assessed grades, unless the moderated grade is higher. This decision enables our school leaders to focus their efforts on getting their school and staff ready for all pupils returning to school at the start of September rather than what would likely have been a massively time consuming appeals process. However, there will still be young people who have lost out on their university place of choice the impact of which cannot be understated.”
