System will ensure 'fair and accurate' summer grades - Gov't

Exams cancelled earlier this year due to Covid-19

Systems are in place to make sure grades for Year 11 and 13 students are 'fair and accurate' this summer, according to government.

Grades are being worked out through mock exams, coursework and class-based tests.

Exams were cancelled earlier this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Government says the Island's secondary schools are having to follow detailed processes set out by the organisations which award the qualifications.

They say this means any work which goes towards final results has to cover assessment criteria and go through 'rigorous moderation and quality assurance'.

Education, Sport & Culture Minister Dr Alex Allinson says this will give students 'the best possible chance' to achieve their grades.

Results for Year 13 pupils for A-Levels, AS-Levels, IA Levels, IAS Levels and Level 3 BTEC's will be on Tuesday, 10 August.

Meanwhile, for Year 11 pupils, GCSE, IGCSE, BTEC, and vocational qualifications results will be given on Thursday, 12 August.
