Teacher Assessed Grades 2021
For summer 2021, exam boards will ask schools to generate, for each subject, teacher assessed grades for their students. These grades will be based on a range of evidence completed as part of the course which demonstrates the student’s performance on the subject content they have been taught.
Teacher assessed grades will apply to all GCSEs, A Levels and vocational courses.
