Pob Lwc to all learners taking exams and assessments

Monday 16 May 2022

On Wales’s first Pob Lwc Day, everyone at Qualifications Wales would like to wish Pob Lwc to all learners taking exams and assessments this year.  

Part of the joint Power Up campaign in partnership with Welsh Government, WJEC, Careers Wales and E-sgol, Pob Lwc Day is all about supporting learners, teachers, parents and carers of those who are taking exams and assessments this year.

A lot is going on today to celebrate the efforts that every learner has made to prepare for their exams and assessments. You will see a variety of Pob Lwc messages across Wales, with good luck messages shared far and wide. Join us and wish Pob Lwc to any learners you know that are taking exams and assessments this summer. 

Exams, assessments, practical and other non-examination assessments are taking place this year for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

COVID-19 has had a big impact on teaching and learning, and for many learners, this year is the first time they will sit formal exams and assessments. That’s why we’ve made changes to the way that learners will be assessed this year, to make it as fair as possible given the disruption to education.

Preparing for exams and assessments is never easy, and many learners in Wales will be feeling anxious about the summer exam series. However, exams and assessments allow learners to earn qualifications that measure what they know, understand, and can do. And the qualifications they earn will support them to take their next steps and progress into continued education or employment.

Pob Lwc to all learners sitting exams and taking assessments this summer, you have already come so far in your education achievements – good luck with your next steps.
