Arrangements for the awarding of qualifications - summer 2021

In January 2021, the Government announced their decision to cancel all public examinations this summer. In their place, schools are being asked to support Awarding Organisations by recommending a Teacher Assessed Grade (TAG) for each pupil in each subject.

Teacher Assessed Grades will be based on:

  1. The content of the course that has been taught only;

  2. The standard at which each pupil is performing currently;

  3. A holistic judgment on a specific, named portfolio of evidence.
