Ofqual update for GCSE, AS and A Level
3rd April 2020
Ofqual have announced a process for awarding GCSE AS and A Level grades which fairly recognises students’ work and makes sure they get their grades in time to progress.
You can see the guidance below.
Ofqual are asking schools and colleges to provide centre assessment grades for their students.
These grades should be a fair, objective and carefully considered judgement of the results schools and colleges believe their students would have been most likely to achieve if they had sat their exams. They will need to take into account the full range of available evidence.
The College will contact you shortly to tell you what this means for you. However, we will not be allowed to share the grades with you or your parents or carers.
QAA update for Access to HE providers and students
3rd April 2020
The QAA and Department for Education have today told us how they plan to assess Access to HE courses.
You can find the official letter for providers and for students below.
Students expected to complete their Access to HE course by 31 July 2020, will be awarded a graded Diploma based on the assessment they have already completed with calculated grades for all remaining assessments that have submission dates after 20 March 2020.
Students who are continuing their studies and will complete their Access to HE course after 31 July 2020 will be supported to complete through changes to the delivery and assessment of their programmes of study that are already being developed/in place.
The QAA is currently working in partnership with Awarding Bodies to develop guidance on how the calculated grade model and quality assurance arrangements will be implemented.
The College will contact you shortly to tell you what this means for you.
