Coronavirus affecting grades

Apr 2020

How will my grades be decided now exams have been cancelled due to coronavirus?


Your grades will be based on what your school or college knows about your work and achievements. They'll send exam boards the grades they believe you were most likely to get if exams had gone ahead, plus where they believe your performance ranks in your class for each subject. They'll also consider things like classwork and homework, assignments and mock exam results, non-exam assessments and coursework, and your general progress during your course. Arrangements are being made for all the exams that lead to university, including A Levels, Highers, BTEC and IB.
