Arrangement for awarding - Summer 2020
Message from Ian Morgan, Chief Executive
Today, Ofqual has announced arrangements for awarding qualifications following the cancellation of the summer examinations by the Secretary of State for Education on 18 March, and has published guidance for teachers, students, parents and carers. We welcome Ofqual’s publications, as our priority is to ensure that the work of learners entered for our qualifications is recognised and they achieve a fair grade so they can progress.
We are committed to working with Ofqual and the other awarding examination bodies to award grades for GCSE, AS, A level and EPQ qualifications.
Over the coming weeks we will be liaising with schools and colleges regarding the submission of their centre assessment grades and the rank order for each of the learners entered for these WJEC Eduqas qualifications. The submission date for this information will be no earlier than 29 May.
We are continuing to work with regulators on how we will award the range of entry level, level 1/2 and level 3 qualifications we provide. As soon as further information is available we will notify you immediately.
We understand that this a particularly stressful time for our teachers and learners and that many of you have further questions you wish us to answer. We can assure you that we are working tirelessly to finalise our approaches and to ensure that learners, who have worked hard in preparing for their qualifications over a number of years, are treated fairly. Our teams remain committed to supporting all our teachers, learners and centres, and we will publish further information in due course, including a range of updated FAQs.
We wish to thank you for your patience and continued understanding and hope you are staying safe at this challenging time for us all.
