Coronavirus update: Ofqual’s consultation on an additional autumn series
Ofqual has announced the outcome of its consultation on an additional GCSE, AS and A level exam series in the autumn, including arrangements for the Extended Project Qualifications and the Advanced Extension Award. The government announced this exceptional exam series when it cancelled the summer 2020 examination series as part of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In summary, Ofqual has decided that:
- all qualifications will be available to learners in the autumn series
- for qualifications with non-examination assessment (NEA) components, only the examined units will be available, with the exception of Art and Design
- AS/A level examinations will commence in October
- GCSE examinations will commence in November
We will work with schools, colleges, Ofqual and other JCQ exam boards to ensure a secure and safe delivery of this exceptional examination series. Further details will be available on our website, including the exam timetable and entry and results dates.
