For all candidates certificating in summer 2021, an assessment must be taken this year.
Any units taken in a previous series or units that are eligible for an assessed grade from summer 2020 are considered ‘complete’.
- If R012 was due to be assessed in summer 2020 (or has been assessed in a previous series), R013 must be completed
- If R013 was due to be assessed in summer 2020 (or has been assessed in a previous series), R012 must be completed
A reduced number of assessments does not apply to Information Technologies due to the 2-unit model
Teaching and learning
We have proposed to Ofqual and the DfE that we change the controls for the moderated unit (R013) so that the same assignment can be used in any series in 2020/21.
We have anticipated that following the advice from Public Health England and/or in the event of further disruption in teaching and learning, it will take longer to prepare and take the assessment.
We hope this removes the pressure that you would have to start a new assignment if you missed the submission deadline for a specific series.
