Information for learners

We’re keen to let learners know about the arrangements for assessment of qualifications in Wales for Summer 2021.

Qualifications Wales is the independent body that regulates GCSE, AS, A Level and vocational qualifications in Wales, to make sure they are fit for purpose. Its work includes setting rules for exam boards to support fairness for learners.

In this section, you will find a range of information and materials to help you understand how your grades will be determined this year, how you can appeal if you need to, arrangements for vocational qualifications and more.

If you have any specific questions or concerns, we’re here to help – email

You can also visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for lots more information on how this summer’s qualifications will be graded.
