Arrangements for the awarding of qualifications - summer 2021

In January 2021, the Government announced their decision to cancel all public examinations this summer. In their place, schools are being asked to support Awarding Organisations by recommending a Teacher Assessed Grade (TAG) for each student in each subject.

Teacher Assessed Grades will be based on:

  1. The content of the course that has been taught only.
  2. The standard at which each pupil is performing currently.
  3. A holistic judgement on a specific, named portfolio of evidence.

NEC will work to support our students to gain results which are fair and representative of the level they are working at. We will provide detailed guidance so that the process is clear and manageable.
