On Friday 15 January, the DfE and Ofqual jointly launched consultations on:

GCSE, AS and A level grade awarding in summer 2021

The DfE/Ofqual have confirmed that:

“This consultation is open to anyone who wants to respond but will be of most interest to students who had been expecting to take their GCSE, AS or A level exams this summer, their parents and carers, their teachers, school and college leaders, exams officers and those who use the qualifications to make selection decisions, such as further and higher education institutions and employers.”

The consultation will be open for two weeks  ending on Friday 29 January at 23:45 pm.
