Schools and colleges in Guernsey have been told to give their A-Level and GCSE students predicted grades after the cancellation of summer exams.
The exam regulator Ofqual says students should be issued with the grades they were most likely to achieve, based on evidence and reviewed by both subject teachers and heads of department.
According to Ofqual guidance, these judgments must be based on evidence of student performance - such as their classwork, homework assesments and mock exams. For A-Level students, their AS grades in that subject will also be considered.
Schools and colleges must also provide a rank order of the students within each grade so that Ofqual can ensure the distribution of grades follows a similar pattern to previous years.
Deputy Matt Fallaize, President of Guernsey's Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, says while the situation is not perfect, he is glad that there is now an understanding about how current students can progress.
Deputy Fallaize says those students who have already sat exams and gained qualifications cannot have them taken away from them.
