The department believes that examinations and assessments are the best and fairest way of judging students’ performance, and we expect next year’s examination series to go ahead.

We continue to work closely with Ofqual, the exam boards and groups representing teachers, schools and colleges to consider our approach to GCSE, AS and A level exams and other assessments in 2021, to ensure that next year’s exam series proceeds fairly and smoothly.
