Our Year 11, 12 and 13 students were entered for Cambridge International and Edexcel exams in June 2020, however, due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, formal exams were not able to go ahead for safety reasons.
During this unprecedented time, staff, students and parents/families all adapted brilliantly to virtual learning until students were able to return to school. Students continued to excel and display improved knowledge through online tests and mock exams.
The exam boards’ grading system for this year was initially based on a statistical model as well as Teacher Accessed Grades and rankings. However, after the release of results, it became apparent that although the statistical model did work for some, it was unable to produce appropriate grades for many students, meaning that there was an urgent worldwide review.
As a result of the exam boards reviewing their processes, both Edexcel and Cambridge International revised their allocated grades and adjusted them to the original Teacher Assessed Grades, aside from instances where the awarded grade was higher.
This was a difficult time for all involved and BVIS would like to thank all the students, parents, families and staff for their patience and understanding whilst grades were being reviewed.
