Ofqual confirms that students who received a teacher assessed grade this summer can sit exams in the same subject in the autumn.

However, there will be no adaptations to exam papers to account for loss of learning due to Covid 19. The grade awarded will be dependent on performance in the exam, and there will be no teacher assessment involved. GCSE exams will take place in November and December.

In addition, any student who was aged at least 16 on 31 August 2021 can take the GCSE English language and maths exams, as is usually the case.

Vocational qualifications and functional skills

A consultation outcome on the awarding on vocational and technical qualifications has also now been published, which requires awarding bodies to make arrangements for assessments to all learners who are eligible to receive a result through a teacher assessed grade should they wish to improve on it.
