The usual process of centres submitting special consideration applications to awarding organisations for qualifications will not apply this summer.
As the range of evidence is flexible and can be tailored to an individual student according to coverage of the specification, Centres should be able to select work completed by a student where they were unaffected by adverse circumstances.
Where this is not possible and a temporary illness, a temporary injury or some other event outside of the student’s control may have affected their performance in assessments which will be used to determine a grade, teachers will take this into account and document how they have done so. Special consideration cannot be applied due to lost teaching and learning. This will be addressed through the flexibility of the range of evidence centres can use to determine students’ grades. Students will only be assessed on the content of the specification that they have covered.
Centres must be satisfied that the issue or event has had, or is reasonably likely to have had, a material effect on a student’s ability to demonstrate his or her normal level of attainment in an assessment and Centres must record how they determined the impact of the misfortune.
Students will be reminded to raise any mitigating circumstances which they believe may warrant special consideration with their teacher, form tutor or any other member of staff with whom they feel comfortable discussing this with. It is important that students raise these issues as soon as possible, ideally at the time of the assessment and prior to the submission of the teacher assessed grade.
If you believe that you have been affected or, you are the parent/carer of a student whom you believe has been affected, then please complete the online form below and submit it before Monday June 14th.
