Autumn exams 2021
Last year there was fewer exams in the Autumn of 2020.
However, we predict that there will be a far greater pressure to put the full array on GCSE and A level exams in the Autumn of 2021.
This is part of what we hope will be the improving flexibility of exams through the secondary school year.
Exams of the benefits of flexibility is : Allowing pupils either a second bit of the cherry soon after their last attempt, or the ability of universities to be more pragmatic in their entrance requirements.
Most of all it moves the power dial over to the exam candidate. Allowing them a range of dates through the year they can sit their exams puts secondary school exams more in line with professional exams.
While we have opened an event to discuss the Autumn 2021 exam options in May.
