Exam Information for GCSE's 2021


Ofqual has now confirmed the quality assurance requirements for samples of students’ work for summer 2021.

Every school and college will be asked to provide samples of student work. Exam boards will ask for evidence from at least:

  • two GCSE subjects, one of which is likely to be either English language or maths.

For each subject, schools and colleges will need to provide all the evidence used to determine the grades of five students.

Ofqual has said, schools and colleges will need to submit this evidence within 48 hours of the request – so it's important that all evidence and records are in good order ahead of that date.

Please see the infographic below to see how GCSE's will be awarded this year.
