The proposal is one of the headline measures included in Ofqual’s consultation over how examination grades will be awarded this year.
Published last week, the consultation runs only until January 29. For GCSE, AS and A levels, it proposes that in summer 2021, a student’s grade in each subject will be based on teacher assessment.
It is proposed that this assessment is made “towards the end of the academic year, at about the time students would have taken their exams” – which would be around May to early June. Grades would be submitted to exam boards in mid-June with results likely in July.
