Exams And Assessments (Vocational Qualifications)

This year, your grades will be calculated by your subject teachers. You can view our centre policy which outlines how we intend to do this fairly, consistently, free from bias, and effectively within and across departments.

Ofqual have published a guide for students about the differences in how your grades have been awarded this year.

There are also two copies of the guidance published by the Bell Foundation available in Arabic for parents and students.

Criteria for how grades will be calculated in each subject are below. You can click the name of your subject to go straight to that section, or scroll down to view them in alphabetical order.
