A Level and GCSE Students
Following the government update yesterday we are aware that A Level and GCSE exams will no longer be taking place in May and June this year due to schools being closed.
We are monitoring the news and working closely with our exam boards and centres. Please bear with us while we wait to receive further instructions and we will update you as soon as possible.
CACHE placement students
Following the government update yesterday regarding school closures, Open Study College will provide free extensions based on the period of time lost whilst the schools are closed.
You can complete knowledge-based assignments and still submit them to your tutor to be marked if you wish. However, bear in mind that some work cannot be completed unless you are on placement.
We are monitoring the news and working closely with CACHE and will provide more details once we have further information.
We want to reassure our students that we are here for you and we have put measures in place to maintain the same high level of service you would normally receive.
