Letter to Students & Parents/Carers about GCSE exams 2022

Due to concerns after the disruption students have experienced in the past two years, we have put plans in place for exams and assessments in case of any further disruption due to the pandemic. This means that you can concentrate on what really matters– studying and revising as you prepare to get the best results you can. 
The Government has set out a full explanation of their plans here. This is also on our website, so please read the 'Letter to Students', which explains the process in detail, and please ask your parents/carer to do the same.
However, below are the arrangements that Shipley College has put in place to make exams and assessments as fair as possible and to plan for any further disruptions.
If there are no exams in summer 2022, we will use formally assessed work to grade all GCSE students.

- Assessments have already started in English and maths (2 have taken place in English in Oct & Dec and 2 in maths in Nov & Dec)

- More assessments have been planned throughout the remainder of the year

- All students will have the opportunity to take mock exams during w/c 28th March. The results of these will form a significant part of grading decisions, therefore attendance is mandatory.

- Students who miss assessments will have the opportunity to resit them during College holidays (e.g. May half term).
- We are aware that many FT students haven't sat an exam in formal conditions. These mocks will run under exam conditions, and will give students invaluable experience ready for their GCSE exams in May and June.  
We will monitor guidance from the DfE / Ofqual (Government Bodies) and will keep you informed of any changes through the College email and website. 
If you have any further questions, please ask your course tutor for clarification.
