Update on Exams 24.03.20

Dear Parents and Students,

I am writing to give you an update on the examinations. We have now received more information from Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE). 

Key Message:

Continue working on all your subjects as normal, even if the exam is cancelled.

Current Status as of 24.03.20

  • Cambridge International has now also cancelled all iGCSE, AS and A-Level May/ June 2020 examination series in all countries. Please see this link to the official announcement. 

  • As you know all exams by AQA have also been cancelled.

  • At the time of writing this, Pearson Edexcel has not as yet made an announcement. 

  • A summary of the current status can be found below.

Important to note the following: 

  • Whilst these examinations have been cancelled, both AQA and CAIE have stated that they will ensure that students do receive a grade and certification based on students’ coursework and the established assessment expertise, rigour and quality control already built into the programmes.

  • CAIE have stated that a full set of guidance for schools, students and parents will be provided  by Thursday 26 March which will give much clearer detail on the above. 

  • AQA have already indicated that they will issue guidance on how grades will be awarded. They indicated they will ask schools to submit a range of data (including Internal assessment data including mock data, prior attainment data e.g previous GCSE Year 10, 11 GCSEs or 12, AS qualifications etc), coursework data, teacher judgement and predicted grades.

  • The qualification you will receive for all subjects will look like all other qualifications from other years and have the same ‘value’ (so accepted by universities and future employers). 

  • We are in constant contact with examination boards and universities. We have already contacted all of Year 13 universities, and received some positive assurances and replies. We will be leading a Google Hangout session with Year 13 parents and students on Wednesday 25th March at 2.35pm. 

Exam cancellation status - as of 24.03.20

Coursework must continue to be completed in these subjects and students must continue with their learning to be awarded a grade.
