Exams in year 2021/22

Exams in the academic year 2021/22

GCSE & Vocational Qualifications – Summer 2021/2022

The government’s intention is that GCSEs, and other formal assessments, including Vocational and Technical Qualifications will go ahead in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. Vocational and Technical Qualifications include those such as BTECs, OCR Cambridge Technicals, Functional Skills and ESOL Skills for Life, among many others.

Contingency arrangements
If the 2022 exams cannot go ahead due to further Covid disruption, students’ grades will instead be determined by your teachers, using a Teacher Assessed Grade (TAG) approach. This means that your teachers will gather evidence, through assessments, to help them determine your grade if exams do not take place. Ofqual have provided guidance that sets out what teachers should do during the rest of this academic year, until exams are taken, as a contingency in case it is not possible for exams to go ahead. Information about how TAGs will be determined, based on the evidence collected, will only be published if exams cannot go ahead as planned – it is only at that point that teachers will need to determine TAGs.
