Consultation description

We are consulting on proposed arrangements for an additional GCSE, AS and A level exam series to take place in autumn 2020. The exceptional exam series was announced by the government when it cancelled the summer 2020 exam series as part of its response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We also set out our proposed arrangements for Extended Project Qualifications and the Advanced Extension Award.
