Details

Chief Regulator Sally Collier has today (Tuesday 15 January 2019) written to schools and colleges to clarify the arrangements for awarding higher tier GCSEs in combined science and modern foreign languages (MFL). The letters confirm that our existing rules will apply in 2019. The decision to allow some candidates to be awarded the grade 3-3 on higher tier combined science in 2018 was exceptional and will not be permitted in summer 2019. Schools and colleges should consider carefully which tier to enter students for.
