SFCA responds to proposed grading for cancelled A level and GCSE exams

Responding to the plans set out by Ofqual today, Bill Watkin, Chief Executive of the Sixth Form Colleges Association said:

“Ofqual has done a remarkable job in a very short period of time. The plans for the summer exam grades are sensible, sensitive and place the minimum burden on teachers while investing maximum faith in their professional judgement. There are still some details to be ironed out, particularly how the appeals process will work and how the statistical modelling will be applied. We must also be careful not to create inequality of opportunity, where some students are more able to benefit from the Autumn exam option than others, depending on their socio-economic status. But overall, sixth form colleges - the second biggest provider of A levels in England - will be pleased that the professionalism and expertise of teachers lie at the heart of these new plans. The next step is to ensure that classroom-based vocational qualifications, such as BTECs, receive the same treatment.”
