Introduction

Latest update: 4 January 2022

Look here for all the information you need to understand plans for public examinations and contingency plans if exams are cancelled.

The government is firmly committed to exams going ahead in summer 2022; however, we have been asked to develop contingency plans in the event that exams have to be cancelled again because of the pandemic. We will conduct two assessment points as preparation for real exams in summer 2022 and a third assessment session will take place only if exams are cancelled. 

Here is an overview of our contingency plans:

There will be 3 assessment points used to develop a teacher assessed grade (TAG) for each subject. 

King Ed’s Plan B: if exams are cancelled…

Assessments for teacher assessed grades (TAGs)

Assessment 1

5 – 14 January 2022

January mocks; required for all subjects. If exams are cancelled, results will contribute to TAGs.

This assessment will happen whether or not exams are cancelled.

Assessment 2

4 – 7 April 2022

Required for all subjects without coursework. If exams are cancelled, results will contribute to TAGs. If the subject has coursework, the coursework would be used instead of this assessment for a TAG.

This assessment will happen whether or not exams are cancelled.

Assessment 3

12 – 20 May 2022

Required for all subjects if exams are cancelled.

This assessment will take place only if exams are cancelled.

 

  • Students who miss the assessments will not have an opportunity to take the assessment at a later date, unless they have proof that the reason relates to required self-isolation due to COVID. Just like for a real exam, students must make every effort to attend their scheduled assessments.
  • Because these assessments may be used for TAGs, the College is required to report all instances of suspected malpractice to the relevant exam board.
  • Teachers will provide an indicative mark for each assessment, but this mark would be subject to quality assurance through the relevant awarding organisation if exams are cancelled and, therefore, would be subject to change.
  • The college is required to retain all scripts; students will receive feedback on each assessment but will be unable to take their scripts home.
  • Special consideration: details relating to special consideration are available here.
