The Gibraltar Government has said it is awaiting further clarify on the GCSE and A-level exam situation from UK regulator Ofqual to fully understand the impact on students.
In a press statement issued shortly after UK Education Secretary Gavin Williamson announced exams will be replaced by school assessments, the Gibraltar Government said it needed clarity as to what alternative arrangements will be put into place for the summer examination series.
After this the Department of Education and schools will be able to understand the full impact on the examinations and how this affects students, parents and teachers.
The cancellation of exams will impact students at Bayside, Westside and the Gibraltar College.
“The Department of Education would like to stress to students and parents the need to
continue following the curriculum provided in and by our schools until further clarity on the
summer examinations is provided by Ofqual and the examination bodies,” the Government said.
“The Department of Education and the schools will provide updates to students and teachers as and when further information is made available.”
