Research published by Ofqual today reflects the views of students, parents and school leaders on assessment arrangements during 2021, following the cancellation of exams.

A series of YouGov surveys commissioned by Ofqual and published today finds the public and stakeholders had less confidence in arrangements for 2021 than in exams.

Just over half (52%) agreed, however, that the arrangements for grading and assessing students in 2021 were as good as they could be in the circumstances. Agreement was highest among parents (59%) and senior school and college leaders (55%), and lowest among students (46%).
