A message for all GCSE, AS and A level students this summer
Ofqual (the exams regulator in England) have recently published information about how GCSE and AS/A level grades will be calculated and awarded this summer.
We appreciate that the last few weeks may have been unsettling for you, but would like to reassure you that the college is doing everything possible to ensure all our students are awarded the grades they deserve.
Please follow the link below to read the full letter to students
The message covers broadly:
- How will grades be calculated?
- Can I see the grades submitted for me?
- When will I get my results?
- Can I take my exams another time?
Please note that the subject teachers cannot provide you with any further information on the process. Any information submitted by the centre is going to be moderated by the awarding organisation before a final grade is issued in the summer.
Please be reassured that the grades you will be awarded this summer will look the same as in previous years and will have equal status with universities, colleges and employers to help you progress in your chosen career path.
If you have any further queries, email email@example.com. Do bear in mind however, that we cannot discuss individual student circumstances.
With best wishes

Create and Connect
The West Midlands Virtual Schools are delighted to bring you Connect & Create:
Connect & Create is a new online feature of our Artslink programme, which provides at-home arts & cultural activities specially selected and commissioned for care experienced children & young people. We know that the arts can present a hugely important opportunity for connection and creativity for care experienced CYP and their key adults during this isolating time, as well as helping to continue their learning.
So we hope you will dive in and give it a go – creative challenges, artist demonstrations, career pathways and a gallery to showcase some of the work produced. We’ll be updating activities regularly, so the site will grow in content, and you can sign up to receive updates.
