Our overriding aim this summer, as with any exam series, is to make sure that every student receives a grade or award that reflects their knowledge and understanding of the subject they have studied. This year is no different, and our focus remains on this objective, ultimately ensuring that students receive a grade or award that is accurate and fair so that they are able to progress.

The links below provide guidance to help schools and colleges to start preparing for submitting Centre Assessment Grades and candidate rank order for our general qualifications. Please see separate guidance for vocational qualifications.
