2021 Exams - Update from Kirsty Williams

Following the recent announcement from the Minister for Education, Kirsty Williams, there should be no end of year exams in 2021.


The decision was made to ensure fairness - the time learners will spend in school will vary hugely and, in this situation, it is impossible to guarantee a level playing field for exams to take place.


In lieu of exams, we will conduct teacher-managed assessments. These will be externally set and marked, but will be delivered within a classroom environment under teacher supervision.


The expectation is that these will form the basis for centre-based outcomes which will be linked to an agreed national approach to provide consistency across Wales.


Further updates will be given in due course.
