Here are the key dates all UK students need to know for the 2021 A and AS Level exam timetable.

Teacher assessments

As all A/AS Level exams are cancelled, students will receive teacher-assessed grades. These grades, based on mock exams, coursework, essays and in-class tests, need to be submitted to the relevant exam board by June 18, 2021.

The Department for Education (DfE) has promised that students will only be assessed on “what they have been taught” after weeks of school closures.

Results

A/AS Level results will be published on August 10, just a few days earlier than previous years. Teachers are not allowed to tell students’ their final grade before results day.

Appeals

Students will be able to appeal their grades, and a final decision will be made by the exam board. Grades can go up or down as the result of an appeal. Appeal fees are likely to be scrapped to allow all students in England the chance to appeal their grades at no additional cost.

The DfE expects that appeals from students with a university place will be prioritised by exam boards.

Resits

Students who are unhappy with their grade can choose to sit an examination in the autumn term 2021, and the government has said that there needs to be a full series of GCSE, AS and A Level examinations held in the autumn. Alternatively, students can enter again for the summer 2022 exams.
