Wales To Scrap GCSE, AS And A-Level Exams For 2021

Wales To Scrap GCSE, AS And A-Level Exams For 2021

Wales is to scrap all GCSE, AS, and A-level exams for 2021, it has been announced.

The Welsh government has confirmed it will work with schools and colleges to create new teacher-managed assessments instead.

Wales's education minister Kirsty Williams said the decision had been taken to ensure 'fairness' across the board, with students having spent differing amounts of time in and out of school over the past eight months.

She said: "We remain optimistic that the public heath situation will improve, but the primary reason for my decision is down to fairness; the time learners will spend in schools and colleges will vary hugely and, in this situation, it is impossible to guarantee a level playing field for exams to take place.
