Information about our June 2021 exam series timetables
Most of our schools tell us they want to hold exams during the same period as previous years. If we move the timetable for one country, students in other countries would be disadvantaged – they would miss university admissions deadlines, or take exams long after the school year has ended. The June 2021 exam series timetable is therefore in line with previous years.
Schools in different countries face different challenges. Some have reopened and are now teaching full timetables with no disruption. Others are open but face the disruption of new restrictions and possibly reduced teaching and learning. Other schools have been closed for some time and will remain closed for some time to come, with significant loss of teaching and learning.
We have already published a range of adaptations for March and June 2021 exams to support schools and students.
We are looking urgently at what more support we can give schools who have lost valuable teaching time as a result of the pandemic, and we will give more information in early December.
