How grades have been awarded this year

We appreciate that this has been a difficult time for students and parents in waiting for results following the Government’s cancellation of exams in March.

At The Willink School we have been committed to carefully following the process for assessing grades with a high degree of accuracy in order to allow students to progress to the next stage of their lives in the normal way.

The links at the bottom of this page from The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) are useful in understanding the process for awarding grades.

The grades that the school submitted to the exam boards were agreed following an internal quality assurance process and are not the sole responsibility of any individual teacher.

The standardisation model developed by Ofqual and the awarding organisations is statistical and may not reflect the grades submitted by the school. The standardisation process applied by the exam boards ensures grades awarded this year are consistent with those awarded to other cohorts in other years.

This was the fairest possible approach available under extreme circumstances. It is a rigorous process which means that grades awarded this year are as valid as in any other year.
