T Level May 2021 Update
Welcome to your May E-Bulletin.
Summer 2021 Assessment
We have been communicating to 2020 Providers with regards to the summer 2021 adaptations for the Core Component assessment.
As you know, the DfE have confirmed T Level students will have the option to receive a Teacher Assessed Grade (TAG) for the Core Component this summer.
We have a dedicated T Levels TAG Guidance for Summer 2021 webpage.
Support materials are located on our Course Materials webpage.
*Please note we have updated the Mark Scheme for Topic Test 2. Please ensure you are using Version 2. A link to the updated PDF can be found here: Topic Test 2 Mark scheme.
The TAG support materials are made up of:
- Specimen Assessment Materials*
- Core Componennt exams:
- A range of topic tests and march schemes
- Grade description supported by performance indicators A, C and E grade
- Guidance on grading
- Worked examples if grading
*please note: our SAMs, AdSAMs and other TAG support materials have recently undergone some minor amendments, therefore please ensure you are using the most up to date versions published on 7 May 2021.
