ISC chairman Barnaby Lenon responds to Ofqual's announcement about how GCSEs, AS and A-levels will be awarded this summer.

Commenting on Ofqual's announcement, he said: “Ofqual has done the best it can to produce new exam grading arrangements in almost impossible circumstances.

“We expect teachers will now be given the support and guidance they need to produce their predicted grades and pupils should be reassured that there will be an exam sitting, hopefully in the autumn, for those who are not satisfied with their results. We hope that universities will show flexibility to ensure that students who take this option are able to begin their course with a delayed start time.”
