autumn exams

BTEC and other vocational exams will still go ahead this month despite the new national lockdown restrictions, the Department for Education has confirmed tonight.

The prime minister Boris Johnson announced this evening that schools and colleges will move to remote learning for most students from tomorrow and that summer exams will “not go ahead as normal”.

But a spokesperson for the DfE has since confirmed that the 135,000 BTEC and other technical exams starting from tomorrow and being over the next few weeks will go ahead as planned.
