Summer 2021 GCSE/GCE Examination Information


The Department for Education has announced that examinations for students in England will go ahead during summer 2021, but to account for disruption caused by the pandemic, most AS, A levels and GCSEs will be held three weeks later:  Monday 7 June – Friday 2 July 2021.


One GCSE Mathematics and one GCSE English examination will be held just before the May half-term, aiming to give any Year 11 pupils who are affected by Covid-19 the best possible chance of still sitting a paper in each of these core subjects.


Results days will be:
A/AS Level – Tuesday 24 August 2021
GCSE – Friday 27 August 2021
to ensure students are able to start the following academic year as normal.
