Exam Information

Summer 2021 Exams

The GCSE Summer 2021 exams have been cancelled and grades will be determined by schools based on assessments, mocks and work throughout the course. All evidence toward the grades will be quality assessed by awarding bodies before final grades will be released on 12 August 2021.


Functional skills exams will go ahead as the DfE and Ofqual feel it is necessary for students to demonstrate their skills in these qualifications.
