We have summarised the changes for our affected GCSE, AS and A Level qualifications, for students certificating in summer 2021.
On 4 August 2020, Ofqual announced the outcome of its consultation on assessments.
We're working on the details of these subject changes and are liaising with Ofqual. We will provide further information and detailed support when we can.
Over the next few months we’ll be publishing:
For Cambridge Nationals and Cambridge Technicals we are currently working with our regulators to confirm the details of the assessment arrangements and will let you know as soon as they are available. However, we recommend you start delivering the content you had already planned to deliver in autumn 2020. For more information, read our subject information update.
As your students return to school, we know you’ll naturally have concerns about how you can make up for lost time and make sure students will be prepared summer 2021 exams.
Working with our Cambridge colleagues we’ve put together a range of resources to support you. These include new resources such as support highlights, baseline diagnostic assessments, videos and Q&A webinars
Our ‘Returning to school’ webinars are live Q&A sessions with our subject advisors. They highlight the specific support available for your subject, changes to specifications as a result of the Ofqual consultation as well as any other considerations for 2020/2021. Book your place now.
Our subject advisors have also written some blogs focusing on resources you can use, and handy hints and tips.
