Autumn 2020 series
A special and additional assessment series has been arranged this autumn. This coincides with an Ofqual requirement for all awarding organisations to run a full exam series in the autumn. All qualifications will be offered, and none can be withdrawn unless no entries are received by the stated closing date.
The table below shows the entry deadline and assessment window dates for the autumn 2020 assessment series for Pearson Edexcel A level Politics. Please double-check the entry dates with your exams officer as an earlier internal entry deadline may be imposed at your school or college.
|Qualification||Entry deadline||Start of window||End of window|
|A level||4 September||5 October||23 October|
No changes to exams
There will be no changes to the content or assessment of A level Politics in the autumn 2020 series.
It is intended that A level entries in this series are restricted to those wanting to be examined following disappointing results or to those who had intended to take the summer 2020 exams but were withdrawn as the exam centre was unable to provide centre assessed grades.
Which grade will count?
If students already have been issued grades in summer 2020 and also decide to take examinations in the autumn, Ofqual has confirmed that they will be able to use the highest of the two grades for future progression.
