Statement in response to the Minister for Education’s announcement regarding qualifications in summer 2021

As the independent regulator of qualifications, we provided advice to the Minister on what we considered to be the fairest approach to assessment in 2021.

We recognise this has been a difficult decision and there are no easy answers. We are considering the decision and what it could mean in practice.  In the meantime, we will provide advice to the Independent Design and Delivery Advisory Group.
