GCSE and A-level exams are still likely to be different next year to address the disruption students have faced to education as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Ofqual’s acting chief regulator has said.

Simon Lebus said the “process of recovering lost learning” will take several years, after pupils have faced months of school closures and time away from school while self-isolating over the past year.

“As far as 2022 is concerned, the thinking at the moment is about adaptations along the lines that had been originally contemplated for this year when exams were still to go ahead,” he told MPs.

“That’s based on the reality of the cohort taking exams next year will have suffered considerable disruption to their learning.”

He told the Education Select Committee on Tuesday: “Though we would hope not on the scale and the level that has been suffered by this year’s cohort so that it would be the reasonable thing to carry out some form of public exams, but that they would be adapted to reflect the learning disruption that has taken place.”
