How will GCSE grades be decided in 2021?

As you will be aware yesterday the Department for Education and Ofqual released the decisions they have made regarding how students in year 11 will get their grades this year following on from the consultation they launched in January with exams being cancelled.

There are many documents you may want to investigate further on the Ofqual website and the Department for Education website including hundreds of pages about the responses to the consultation and the decisions made.

However, what we wanted to do was give some clarification to both students and parents on the process that is being put in place and on how decisions about grades are going to be made this year.

Therefore, we have summarised the Ofqual decisions and plans in the below video.
