Thank you for all your hard work this year and your continued efforts in very unusual circumstances. We do hope you feel well supported by the College in this period of home learning.
We have now heard from the official body Ofqual about how your GCSE exam grades in English and maths will be determined. This is explained in this STANDARD LETTER and we would encourage you all to read it, and to share it with your parents/carers where appropriate.
Your grades will be based on your classroom work and assessments completed since September and your progress reviews to date. They will also be guided by your English or maths tutor, who knows you best and knows how hard you’ve worked. Very specific guidance will be followed by the teachers in this respect to ensure consistency across the country.
Your English and maths tutors will continue to be in touch with you, and to set work, up to the point when grades are to be submitted and you should continue to work on your English and maths until this point.
It may be tempting to ask your teacher or tutor about your potential grades or about the work that they will be doing to determine them, HOWEVER, YOU SHOULD NOT DO SO. They will not be able to discuss this with you, and the grades will be confidential and subject to Ofqual processes and checks before the release date in the summer.
Once the grades have been released in the summer anyone unhappy with their result will have the opportunity to appeal.
