Barnsley Sixth Form College welcomes the acknowledgment that the 2021 exam series will pose similar challenges to 2020’s. We will continue to work tirelessly to ensure our students have the best opportunities to succeed and that the examination and grading system for next year does not cause undue concern. We look forward to receiving further details in the New Year.
The government has launched its consultation (below) on modifications to next summer’s exams (taking exam aids in; publishing exam topics in advance)
To make exams in 2021 less daunting for GCSE, AS and A level students, for many subjects they will be told in advance some of the topics that will or won’t be on the papers, helping them to manage their revision.
For some subjects, students will be given support material in the exams, such as formulae and equations. The exact approach will vary by subject.
Before completing the survey, which is open to anyone, you are asked to make sure that you have read one of the documents on this page or watched the video below.
The consultation closes at 11:45pm on 20 December.
