AUTUMN SERIES 2021

There will be the option to resit GCSEs, A levels and some AS levels in the autumn, which may be preferable to some students. The design, content and assessment of these papers will be the same as in a normal year. Who can enter for this exam series?

• If you were entered for a particular subject in the cancelled Summer Exam 2021 series, then you qualify to sit that subject in the Autumn Exam series.

• No new subject entries can be made for this series.

• Only consider an entry if you feel that the grade you have received is not reflective of what you might have achieved had you been able to sit the exam, and does not enable you to get to your chosen destination after leaving school.

• Preparation lessons for this exam series will not be included in the timetabling for September. Revision and preparation will ultimately rest with the student.
