Regional Press Release – A / AS Level
AS and A Level results
17 August 2020
The six education portfolio holders representing the 6 North Wales Local Authorities, their Chief Officers, the Regional School Improvement Consortium GwE and secondary head teachers warmly welcome the announcement by the Education Minister in Wales that A level, AS, GCSE, Skills Challenge Certificate and Welsh Baccalaureate grades in Wales will now be awarded on the basis of Centre Assessment Grades. We feel this is in the best interest of our young people who have been anxious and unsure of their future.
We look forward to hearing more about the ‘independent review of events following the cancellation of this year’s exams’ announced by the Education Minister and hope that we will be given the opportunity to feed appropriately into the process.
It allows schools to now concentrate on the critical job of preparing to re-open safely in September.
