Teacher Assessed Grades - Summer 2021

On 4th January 2021, the government announced that external examinations in summer 2021 could not go ahead as planned. Pupils will still be awarded their qualifications. In the place of external examinations, teacher assessed grades will be produced and submitted to the awarding (exam) bodies. These grades will be based on a range of evidence completed as part of the course and demonstrate the pupil’s performance on the subject content they have been taught.

A summary of the evidence being used for each qualification can be found below
