Breaking News: Delays for GCSE and A-level Exams in England in 2021

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson.

GCSE and A-level exams in England will still go ahead next summer, but the majority of them will be delayed by three weeks.

Education secretary Gavin Williamson said the move would “Give students more time to prepare and a chance to catch up on education lost due to COVID-19. We know that exams are the fairest way of measuring a student’s abilities and accomplishments, including the most disadvantaged. We want to give our young people the opportunity next summer to demonstrate what they know and can do.”

Earlier this month it was announced that only A levels would be delayed but Williamson had said the GCSE’s are now going to be delayed by three weeks also.
