“Students taking GCSE, AS and A-levels regulated by Ofqual will this year be awarded grades based on an assessment by their teachers.
Earlier this year the Government confirmed no performance data for schools will be published, as in 2020, because of the exceptional circumstances under which grades have been awarded.

“They will focus again on celebrating the successes of students whose hard work and dedication resulted in them securing a great outcome, given the challenges of the last year.”
