About the Webinar

Webinar Duration: 54 minutes (approx.)

Please note, this webinar has now been archived. The information contained in this webinar was correct at the time of publishing.

This webinar will provide headteachers, teachers and examination officers with an insight into arrangements for the determination of grades for A/AS Levels and GCSEs for Summer 2021, exploring how issues such as consistency and bias can be addressed, and offering practical guidance on the next steps schools should take.

In February 2021 government issued its policy setting out how, in light of the pandemic, GCSEs, AS and A levels should be awarded this year using teacher assessed grades based on a range of evidence. Following this, JCQ has issued guidance for exam centres on how the policy is to be implemented so that grading is robust and fair.

In this webinar, The National College explains the key points of the JCQ guidance, including the centre policy, grading, quality assurance, results and appeals processes, and discusses schools’ and teachers’ roles and responsibilities in making sound grading judgements which inspire public confidence.

  • Gaining insight and practical advice on JCQ’s guidance for exam centres regarding the determination of grades for A/AS Levels and GCSEs for students in Summer 2021.
