In preparation for the GCSE exam results this week, it has been confirmed that school-set Centre Assessed Grades will be used to award the pupil’s grades.

Welsh Government has made numerous changes to the awarding of both A Level and GCSE examination grades in the past few days.

Kirsty Williams MS, Minister for Education, has announced that the school-set Centre Assessed Grade will now be used for all GCSE, AS and A Level examinations for 2020.

For the AS and A Level results already published to pupils on 13 August 2020, the Centre Assessed Grade will now be re-issued to the school. If the result given to AS and A Level pupils on 13 August 2020 is higher that the Centre Assessed Grade, the higher of both grades will be the final awarded grade.

Ceredigion County Council and our schools are aware of the additional anxiety that the uncertainty over the recent days has caused many of our learners. We would like to assure our learners that all schools are doing everything possible to ensure that pupils are able to access the university, college or work placements of their choice.
