As you will no doubt be aware, there will be no examinations this summer. For us in Year 10 this means we will not be sitting GCSE English Literature examinations in May.
What we know currently is that exam boards will use a range of information to calculate grades. We don’t yet know if this includes Y10 students who were set to take their exams or whether this is just for students in Y11 and Y13. Once we have this information, we’ll ensure students and their parents are informed.
Even if they do accept Y10 entries for this summer and provide calculated grades, we still advise students in year 10 to continue with their English Literature work as they may wish to improve upon their calculated grade and sit the examinations at the earliest opportunity.
