Education: Assessments

Question for Department for Education

UIN HL10254, tabled on 11 November 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the case for universities and schools in England aligning end-of-year assessment plans with the rest of the UK.

Answered on

25 November 2020

We have been working closely with all the devolved administrations throughout the COVID-19 outbreak on all decisions relating to exams and qualifications, reflecting the differing educational systems of each country. We will continue to do so in preparing for the challenges of exams in 2021.

As autonomous institutions, universities are responsible for their own assessment arrangements.
