Following the cancellation of exams this summer, you will get grades based on teacher assessment. We want you to progress with results that are as fair as possible. Take a look at Qfqual's guide and our short video which explain how you will get your results.
Our timeline of key dates summarises many key activities this summer including results days and the deadlines for appeals. You can read the full summary in our news story.
If you have any questions, do speak to your teacher/tutor and check out our FAQs.
To help you get ready for any assessments, we have provided a range of questions taken from past exams. These are available as Zip files and can be found by using our 2021 assessment materials finder.
