Information for AS pupils studying Computer Science and Media Studies

WJEC have recently announced their protocol in relation to the awarding of AS grades.

WJEC have recently announced their protocol in relation to the awarding of AS grades, which is outlined below.

WJEC state:

“Learners who were due to sit their AS exams this summer will not be required to sit those exams.

AS learners will be awarded a qualification in a similar way to those taking GCSEs and A levels this summer.

AS learners will receive a final AS grade from WJEC this summer, which will be based on a range of evidence, including teacher assessed grades.

The AS grade awarded to learners this summer will not contribute to their A level results in 2021.

In summer 2021, AS learners will be given two options for their A level qualifications, either to:

  1. sit their A2 units only, and their grade will be awarded based solely on their performance in those units (which will be used to calculate marks for their AS units), OR
  2. sit both AS and A2 units, if they wish to do so.If learners decide to take option 2 next year, we will also consider the grade they would have been awarded if they took option 1. Their final grade will be the best grade awarded from either option.”

N.B. Information from the other exam boards has yet to be confirmed.
