Teacher Assessed Grades this Summer

Assessment Adaptations and Qualification-level Teacher Assessed Grades (QTAG) Summer 2021

We are so proud of all our students who continue to work hard to complete their qualifications this year despite the disruptions due to the pandemic, and the significant alterations to the assessment methodology of the qualifications they are working towards.

For example, you may be studying towards A levels, GCSEs, or BTECs where many of the external exams have been replaced by QTAG, or you may be working towards vocational qualifications in which the assessments have been adapted. 

The College works with 22 different exam boards and our Quality team has been working very closely with teaching staff to ensure we understand the changed guidance that the Department for Education, Ofqual and the exam boards have issued over the last two months. 

Ofqual has published the following very useful Student Guide to Awarding: Summer 2021 guide which should answer any questions you might have about the assessment process and the timeline for Summer 2021.

Pearson have also provided additional information for students receiving BTEC Level 3 qualifications.
