Exams & Revision
Update as at April 2021
Year 11 pupils will not be sitting their GCSE exams this year. Instead, as a school, we will submit Centre Assessed Grades for all GCSE subjects by 18 June 2021.
The Centre Assessed Grades awarded will be an assessment on the standard at which pupils are performing based only on what has been taught over the course. This judgement will be based on a range of evidence relating to the subject content that has been delivered, either in the classroom or via remote learning.
Teachers will use evidence gathered throughout the course to inform their judgement. This might include work that has already been completed, mock exam results, homework or in-class tests, and the results from the forthcoming assessments in school. The grade awarded will use evidence from all appropriate sources and will not be based on any one single evidence source.
For GCSE Art & Design, grades will be based on a pupil’s portfolio only.
For vocational subjects, teachers will have told each class what is required but please feel free to contact the teacher if you require further clarification.
All pupils in Year 11 will take part in a series of internal assessments - see timetable below. These will all be delivered in a classroom environment but will be under modified exam conditions. The assessments will only form part of the Centre Assessed Grade. Pupils who are entitled to special access arrangements will receive them.
