Evidence for Grading 2021

Awarding GCSE, AS, A-Level Grades and Vocational Qualifications

The examinations and assessments regulator, Ofqual, has stated 

  • Teachers will assess the standard at which you are performing based only on what you have been taught so that your school can determine your grade
  • Teachers’ judgements should be based on a range of evidence relating to the subject content that your teachers have delivered, either in the classroom or via remote learning
  • Teachers will be able to use evidence about your performance gathered throughout your course to inform their judgement. This might include work that you have already completed, mock exam results, homework, or in-class tests. Your teachers may also use questions from exam boards, largely based on past papers, to help assess you. Reasonable adjustments have been taken into account if you have a disability
  • We know that some of you may be worried that you have not covered all the content for a particular subject. We will not set any requirements about the minimum amount of content that should be taught or assessed, but we will ask Mr Bond to confirm that you have been taught enough content so that you can progress to the next stage of your education

The information below will outline what sources of evidence will be considered for each subject.  This is subject to change after the Easter holidays, when information from examination boards is made available. We would like to stipulate that faculties at Oxted School have the option to use these External Assessment Materials or formulate their own assessment questions.
