Exam Information

The Government announced that arrangements for the 2022 summer exams are expected to be largely unchanged from what was laid out last year.  Exams will therefore go ahead, meaning last year’s teacher assessed grades (TAGs) have been removed, but extra “mitigations” will be allowed to compensate students for disruption to their education caused by the Covid pandemic.  TAGs will only be used as a contingency if all exams are cancelled.

Ofqual have written a letter to all students with more details which can be found below and there are other links that you may find useful:
