Summer 2021: Changes to assessments

The Welsh Government’s Design and Delivery Advisory Group has announced that GCSE and AS/A level assessments in 2021 will be based on:

  • Non-Examination Assessments - details available in NEA information booklet
  • Internal assessments - based on existing WJEC assessment materials and delivered by centres within a broad window
  • Externally set and marked assessments – delivered flexibly within qualification assessment windows to suit local teaching and learning requirements
