We have recently shared our proposed approach for adapting Cambridge Nationals and Cambridge Technicals in 2020/21. We’ve submitted our proposals to our regulator and the DfE for review. This requires time and we look forward to confirming the final details as soon as possible.
As your teachers may be waiting for the proposals to be confirmed before making final decisions on January 2021 entries, in response to your feedback you can make entries until 2 November 2020 without incurring late entry fees. This applies to both examined unit entries for Cambridge Nationals and test unit entries for Cambridge Technicals.
Further information on the proposals can be found in the Teacher FAQ area:

- What are OCR's proposals for adapting Cambridge Technicals in 2020/21?
For Cambridge Nationals schools and colleges, we'd really encourage you to submit some, or as many of your moderated units as you can, ahead of the summer 2021 series and to support this, there will be no late entry fees applied for the January series. Where you are able to complete moderated units, please continue to submit entries to us at any point up to the end of 2020.
The entry deadline for examined units in January is Monday 2 November 2020 and late fees still apply.
The centre-assessed mark submission deadline for Cambridge Nationals remains 10 January 2021.
