Prince Henry’s Exams Office update 

24th March 2020
We have been in contact with the Exam boards with regards to NEA and at this time they are unable to inform us further on the requirement for this summer. They are continually liaising with Ofqual and as soon as they have an update they will inform centres and update their websites.

If you are a private/ external candidate, we have been told to wait for further information before advising you to defer your entry or withdraw from exams this summer.

All exam board websites provide coronavirus advice and updates which are updated regularly.

Following the Department for Education’s announcement on Friday 20th March confirming the process for calculating students’ grades, this is what we know of the awarding process for summer 2020:

Step 1
The awarding bodies will be asking teachers to submit their judgement about the grade that they believe the student would have received if exams had gone ahead.

Step 2
To produce the above, teachers will take into account a range of evidence and data including performance in mock exams and non-exam assessment.

Step 3
The exam boards will then combine this information with other relevant data, including prior attainment, and use this information to produce a calculated grade for each student, which will be a best assessment of the work they have put in.

Step 4
Calculated grades will aim to be provided to students before the end of July.

Step 5
If students do not believe the correct process has been followed in their case they will be able to appeal on that basis.

Step 6
If students do not feel the calculated grade reflects their performance, they will have the opportunity to sit an exam at the earliest reasonable opportunity, once schools are open again. Students will also have the option to sit their exams in summer 2021.
