Awarding in 2021

2021 has been a different year for learners, their parents, carers, schools and colleges. ​

The way qualifications are being awarded is also different. GCSE, AS and A level learners in Wales are receiving provisional Centre Determined Grades in June from their schools and colleges. 

Final results will be published on 10th August for AS and A levels and 12 August for GCSE. 

Learners studying vocational qualifications should receive their final results no later than those learners studying for A levels and GCSEs) (on 10 and 12 August). Provisional Centre Determined Grades won’t be issued for vocational qualifications.
