A-level and GCSE exams for 2021 are scheduled to go ahead next summer but with a three week delay for ‘most’ subjects.

The proposed delay had been reported in the UK media last week and it was confirmed today by the UK secretary of state for education, Gavin Williamson.

He said that the decision would "give students more time to prepare and a chance to catch up on education lost due to COVID-19. We know that exams are the fairest way of measuring a student’s abilities and accomplishments including the most disadvantaged.”

He continued: ‘We want to give our young people the opportunity to demonstrate what they know and can do.”
