In January, the Department for Education (DfE) communicated the following message to awarding organisations:
Ministers have decided that students who are due to complete key stage 5 in summer 2018 and are taking Tech Levels or Applied General qualifications on the 2018 performance tables list should be given an additional opportunity to retake their external assessment(s).
This meant Cambridge Technicals students were allowed to resit their external assessments one more time. This additional resit has now been confirmed for future exam series too.
The near-pass grades announced in April will also continue to apply for external assessments.
Our centre handbooks and FAQ documents are currently being updated to reflect these changes, and will be available from the qualification pages.
If you have any queries about this update and how it affects your centre, please call the Customer Contact Centre on 02476 851509.
