NEA UpdateFor the latest information on NEA adaptations in 2021 please read our booklet


Following the Minister for Education’s announcement that there will be no summer 2021 exams, the Minister has established a Design and Delivery Advisory Group to develop proposals for an approach to assessments.


The Group, which includes school and college leaders from across Wales and is being advised by specialists at Qualifications Wales and WJEC, will share its proposals by the end of December. The final decision on the way forward for 2021 will be made by the Welsh Government, in accordance with Qualifications Wales’ remit as a regulator.

We recognise the need for clarity, and will do everything we can to ensure you are kept up-to-date with all the latest news and information. Regular updates will be posted on our website, social media, and via our e-mailing list.
