How will schools decide GCSE grades in 2021?

You can download these short, easy to understand guides for learners who use EAL, and their parents or carers. There are separate guides for learners and parents.

Over the last year, many schools had to close for long periods of time because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Because of this, the government has decided it would be unfair to have GCSE exams this year. Instead, teachers will assess you and decide on your grades in other ways. 

EAL1Guidance for learners - GCSE grades 2021

This guidance gives you information about how your school and your teachers will decide your grades.

It also tells you what your rights are and what you can do if you are not happy with your grade or grades. It also covers what you can do to prepare for teacher assessments.

EAL2Guidance for parents - GCSE grades 2021

This guidance gives you information about how your child’s school and teachers will decide on your child’s grades.

It also covers what your child’s rights are and what to do if you are not happy with your child’s grade or grades. It also covers what you can do to help your child to prepare for the assessments.
