The effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic will continue to be felt into the academic year 2020-21. This could be as the result of social distancing or other restrictions on in-person teaching, or for many learners as the result of learning lost during the lockdown.

We remain committed to supporting our centres to meet the ongoing needs of their learners and continue to work closely with the regulators to develop an approach which ensures a fair and equitable solution for those whose learning has been disrupted and who will be taking assessments in the 2020-21 academic year.

As with our approach to awarding learners in summer 2020, we will update this page and be in touch with Centres to inform them of the appropriate actions as the situation develops.

The Secretary of State has asked the regulators to work with Awarding Organisations to develop an approach to assessment for the new academic year, taking into account the disruption to learning and on-going public health safeguards.

Ofqual has confirmed changes to GCSEs, AS and A Levels next year and is now consulting on proposals for adjustments to vocational, technical and other general qualifications. We encourage centres to read and respond to this consultation by the deadline of 14th August 2020.
