2021 GCSE And A-Level Exams Will Go Ahead But 'Most' Delayed By Three Weeks

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has announced that GCSE and A-Level exams in England will be going ahead next summer, although 'most' of the examinations will be delayed by three weeks.

Williamson said that he hoped this move would give students 'more time to prepare' and 'a chance to catch up on education lost due to Covid-19'.

He added: "We know that exams are the fairest way of measuring a student's abilities and accomplishments, including the most disadvantaged.

"We want to give our young people the opportunity next summer to demonstrate what they know and can do."
