Important update for all A level and GCSE learners and their parents/carers
This academic year, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the impact on teaching and learning, the Education Minister, Kirsty Williams announced that the exam series for 2020/21 would be cancelled. WJEC, during the week beginning 15th March, confirmed the individual subject assessment frameworks for schools and colleges regarding centre approaches to assessing AS, A2, GCSE and Welsh Baccalaureate qualifications. Centres are required to produce Centre Determined Grades (CDGs) for all learners based firmly on evidence of their achievement. This differs from last year’s approach where Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) were utilised as there is no prediction involved and no external standardisation to be undertaken by the awarding body.
The College Merthyr Tydfil is committed to ensuring fairness and accuracy for all learners and will support our learners fully throughout this process. The centre will be transparent in its approaches to assessment so that learners and their parents/carers have full confidence that our processes are robust and inclusive.
This page has therefore been set up to keep all learners and parents/carers fully informed of the process and timescales for the allocation of Centre Determined Grades.
There will also be an opportunity for parents and carers to ask any specific questions you may have during a Q&A session on Thursday 25th March at 5-6pm via Microsoft Teams. To book a place on this session, please click here
