Ofqual confirmed a return to pre-pandemic grading for GCSE, AS and A levels in 2023. They recognised that students in the 2023 cohort have experienced some disruption due to the impact of COVID-19, and will put in place some grading protection for students in 2023.
This will be the same protection that was given for the first cohorts of students taking reformed GCSEs and A levels from 2017 onwards. This meant not disadvantaging students who might have performed less well because they were the first to sit new exams.
