Autumn 2021 Series

Any student who receives a teacher-assessed grade (TAG) this summer, or who would have entered for the exams in Summer 2021 had they taken place, can take the corresponding GCSE, AS and A Level exams in Autumn 2021. In addition, any student who was aged at least 16 on 31 August 2021 can take the GCSE English Language and Mathematics examination.

Adaptations will only be made for some GCSE subjects that had a previous arrangement following Ofqual’s consultation in 2020. There will be no non-examination assessments, with all grades determined by students’ performance in the exams only (with the exception of Art and Design qualifications). Students will be able to carry forward endorsement grades.

Reviews of Centre Marks

Candidates may request a review of the centre’s marking of non-examination units in GCSE, GCE and Project qualifications (including coursework and controlled assessment). Candidates considering this option should discuss their results with the relevant teacher and/or Head of Department and may request copies of materials to assist them in making a decision.

Further information regarding the forms that should be completed, fees and the deadline for any requests will be updated once available.

Please be aware that reviews can lead to marks going down as well as up. Further information about how we conduct reviews can be found on the policies page of the school website.

Special Consideration

Special Consideration is a post-examination adjustment to a candidate’s mark or grade to reflect temporary illness, temporary injury or some other event outside of the candidate’s control at the time of the assessment, which has had, or is reasonably likely to have had, a material effect on a candidate’s ability to take an assessment or demonstrate his or her normal level of attainment in an assessment.

You can download a copy of the JCQ document, A Guide to the Special Consideration Process 2021-2022 here.

Please notify the Examinations Officer, on the day of the examination, if you feel that an application for Special Consideration should be considered for submission.
