Exam Information – Summer 2021

On 4 January 2021, the Government announced that this summer’s exams would not go ahead as planned. Grades for GCSEs, A Levels and other vocational qualifications will be determined by teachers, based on a range of evidence students have produced during the course of study. These grades will be reviewed and quality assured by the exam boards and students will receive results as usual in August 2021.

At Jack Hunt School we have produced a policy outlining how we will determine teacher assessed grades this year:

The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) has also produced guidance for students and parents on how grades will be awarded this year, including information on how to appeal:

Ofqual has produced a guide for students about how grades will be awarded this summer for general and vocational qualifications:

We recently published information for Y11 and Y13 students on how we are managing assessments with videos and resources which outline how the assessment process will work and details on how each curriculum area will be assessing students:
