CCEA statement on the cancellation of 2021 examinations

Published: 06/01/2021, 2:35pm

Following today’s decision by Minister of Education, Peter Weir MLA, all GCSE, AS and A2 exams due to take place in January, February, May and June will be cancelled.

CCEA had already been asked to consider contingency arrangements, should examinations be cancelled. Work will continue on alternative awarding arrangements and we will provide advice to the Department of Education, and other education partners, on these arrangements.

We fully understand the challenging situation faced by learners and are committed to provide solutions as soon as possible, to ensure our young people will continue to have a pathway into further education or employment.
