Message Regarding Cambridge National and Cambridge Technical January Examinations 2021

Published: 07/01/2021, 12:35pm

OCR have released the following statement on Cambridge National and Cambridge Technical January examinations on their website.

Please read this update on January exams going ahead.

Please note the following from this for students who do not take the exams this January:

  1. There may be an opportunity to take their assessment at a future date. If this is not possible due to arrangements still to be announced for this summer, OCR will work with the DfE and Ofqual to make sure they are treated fairly.
  2. If students were going to certificate in January, OCR will award a grade to a student if there is enough evidence, to help them progress.


CCEA Regulation will work with OCR to ensure that NI candidates are afforded the same opportunities as above.
