Dear Sixth Form Student,
The Chair of OFQUAL has announced this afternoon that there will be a change to the way grades are awarded this year. This follows the issues arising from the large scale reduction in grades that was evident last week when A level and AS grades were announced.
Now, A level and AS level students will receive whichever is the higher grade of the externally awarded grade and the teacher Centre Assessment Grade (CAGs).
For GCSE, the teacher Centre Assessment Grade will be used (CAGs).
This news will be a great relief to you no doubt, and should ensure that students are rewarded for their hard work and are able to progress to their intended destinations.
We await more detail on how this process will work in relation to getting CAGs to universities etc. We do not yet know the details as they affect the distribution of GCSE grades which are released this coming Thursday.
Below is a link to the statement by the Head of OFQUAL.
Hopefully this news will bring to an end an uncertain and stressful time. If you have any questions or concerns we have staff on hand to answer questions on:
In the meantime, to keep up to date with the latest news please now use this site.
