Decision on GCSEs and A Levels welcomed
Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Education has welcomed Welsh Government’s decision on next year’s GCSEs and A Levels arrangements.
Welsh Government Minister, Kirsty Williams, has announced (10/11/20) that GCSE and A Level students will not take examinations in May/June 2021.
Pupils will instead receive grades based on assessments carried out in schools.

“We’ll work closely with our schools to provide the support they need to deliver the teacher-managed assessments.”
