Awarding Grades 2021
Following the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the UK government has decided that the Summer 2021 examination series will not go ahead as planned. Instead, teachers will determine grades, based upon a range of evidence verified by the college.
These results will then be reviewed by the exam boards who designed each course, before awarding the final grades which reflect your performance on content you have been taught, and allow you to confidently progress to the next stage of your education or into employment.
On this page, you will find relevant documents explaining how Long Road Sixth Form College has determined the grades, how you will get your results, and how the appeals process will work.
For students who wish to improve on the grade awarded, there will be an additional exam series in the Autumn Term for any student who was expecting to sit exams in the summer. This will be a standalone series and will not include marks from any work used in the Teacher Assessed Grades, including coursework (NEA).
