UCAS statement following Ofqual’s announcement on awarding grades this year

Posted Fri 3 April 2020 - 11:05

Clare Marchant, UCAS’ Chief Executive, said: ‘It’s essential for their future education and careers that students receive a set of fair and justifiable examination results. The processes outlined by Ofqual today will do exactly that.

‘The best available evidence in the extraordinary circumstances we are all in will be used to calculate regulated grades that will stay with students for years to come.

‘For those applying to higher education, we expect them to be treated fairly and consistently, and universities and colleges to consider these grades in the same way as any qualifications from previous years.’
