As the number of confirmed coronavirus cases continues to rise drastically, England’s qualifications regulator Ofqual and the exam boards are exploring contingencies that may be put in place if schools are shuttered before the start of exam season in May.
According to The Times, one of the contingency scenarios under consideration would see exams being delayed.
Other measures that could be put in place would give “special consideration” to students impacted by school closures or illness, while those who miss some exams could be awarded a grade based on their earlier papers.
Students should prepare as normal for the upcoming exams as it is possible this delay or disruption will not occur.
