  • 2021 Exams Update

    Published 20/10/20

    2021 exams update 
    On 13th October 2020, the government made an announcement about GCSEs, AS and A levels in 2021. The key points were as follows:

    • Exams will go ahead, but most will be delayed by about three weeks, taking place between 7 June and 2 July.
    • One maths and one English GCSE exam will be held just before the May half-term, to give pupils affected by Covid a better chance of still sitting a paper in each of these subjects.
    • Results days will be Tuesday 24 August for A and AS levels and Friday 27 August for GCSEs

    Parents and students should be aware of these dates when planning for 2021.
