Government cancellation of GCSE and A-Level Exams
As you are aware, the government has canceled GCSE and A-Level exams for Year 11s as part of its response to the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak in the United Kingdom.
This has been emotionally devastating for many and leaves everyone with unanswered questions about how qualifications will be awarded and the impact this will have on their child’s future.
It has not yet been announced how this situation will be resolved, however we will continue to update Learners and families as soon as we receive the government guidance on this.
It is important to note that at this time Functional Skills examinations, which Inclusion Hampshire delivers for its learners, have not been cancelled. It is therefore hugely important that our Year 11s continue to use the Virtual School package that has been provided by their tutors.
I know that many of you will be concerned about their child’s college placement, and we will continue to update you as and when we hear news relating to this.
Basingstoke College of Technology (BCOT) have today released the following:
“We are still awaiting Government guidance on how grades will be decided. However, we can guarantee that you will get a place at the college, and this will all be finalised at enrolment in August.”
BCOT have cancelled all Applicant Evenings for the foreseeable future but have said that if you have received a conditional offer letter your place at the college in September 2020 is secure.
