Most AS, A levels and GCSEs will be held three weeks later than normal next summer, to help address the disruption caused by the pandemic, the government has said. 

They’ll run between 7 June and 2 July, for almost all AS, A levels and GCSEs.

The government wants to work with Ofqual, the regulator, and others, on a range of scenarios and contingency plans, for example if a student is unable to sit an exam due to illness or self-isolation. Or if a school is affected by a local outbreak at the time, and can’t open.

More detail will be published this autumn.
