The recent announcement from the Education Secretary (read it here
) might have caused further confusion for students awaiting results tomorrow (A-Level) and next week (GCSE). It does not change the process for GCSE and A-Levels results days which you can read about on the Exams page of our website here
as well as in this newsfeed.
We know this is a difficult and confusing time, with mixed messages coming from the media also. We ask students and their families not to speculate or panic about what this means.
OFQUAL have issued a statement (read it here
), which says that “we understand why the government has wanted to provide some additional assurance for students, by confirming that evidence from valid mock exams can be considered as part of an appeal. We are working urgently to operationalise this as fairly as possible and to determine what standards of evidence will be required for the appeal. We will provide more detail early next week.
So, when the School we can offer more information about this, we will.
Meantime, tomorrow, Thursday 13th August (A-Level), and on Thursday 20th August (GCSE), students will get a letter emailed to them from the St Marylebone Exams Office, giving them all the information they need. Read this carefully and take time to think things through.
Meantime, St Marylebone School is working hard to get everything in place to offer students the support and information they need to secure their next steps.
