Coronavirus Update

Covid-19 Update

At Cambridge Regional College we have adapted to ensure we continue to support you in your learning goals through online learning and Covid safety measures for on site learning throughout the Coronavirus pandemic. The health and wellbeing of our students, staff, and visitors is our first priority and we are doing everything possible to support you and keep you safe.

Twice weekly testing is now available for students and staff. There is a small testing station at College, however this should be done at home wherever possible. Please speak to your Tutor or Assessor for more information, and click here for more information about testing

Exams and Assessment – 25 March

GCSEs

There are no summer exams this year for GCSES, however we are required to gather evidence to support TAGs – Teacher Assessed Grades. Evidence includes work completed this year, mocks and assessment tasks specifically for this purpose. We are asked to collect this evidence as late in the year as possible so we can provide the grade you are working at. This will not be a predicted grade, but must be based on work completed. We are not allowed to tell you what your TAG is, but we will tell you the evidence we have used.

If you are on a GCSE English or maths course this year there will be a number of short assessments you will complete; for most people this will be during the weeks of 26th April and 10th May. For most, these tasks will be completed in your usual English and maths classes. You must continue to attend your English and maths classes after these dates. These tasks will form part of, but not the only, evidence sources to calculate your grade.

In the meantime, it is really important that you continue to attend your classes and do all the work that is set.

Functional Skills and ESOL

Functional Skills and ESOL exams will take place in the summer term. Your teacher or assessor will check that you are ready to take your exam before you are entered for it.

Vocational Qualifications

BTEC, NCFE, UAL, CACHE (and other qualifications similar to A Levels)
Most of these qualifications require us to provide a Teacher Assessed Grade – TAG or QTAG. We will use work completed this year to determine final grades. The exact requirements are different for each qualification and awarding body, but we are working with each of them to make sure we follow their guidance. We are not allowed to share grades with you, but your teachers and tutors will keep you updated with any changes we need to make to assessment dates and deadlines. Please make sure you keep attending and completing all the work set so you have the best chance of a higher grade.

Technical and practical subjects (for example EAL, City & Guilds, IMI, some CACHE qualifications)

Qualifications that include practical assessments for occupational competency or include a licence to practice will continue to be assessed as normal. The college is able to make some small adjustments to assessment tasks in some cases; teachers, tutors and assessors will keep you updated with any changes we need to make to assessment dates and deadlines.

HE and Access to HE

Assessments for our HE and Access to HE courses will continue in line with assessment schedules and awarding body guidance. Teachers will keep you updated if there are any changes.

We will continue to post updates when information is available, and will contact students, parents and employers when information about specific assessments is released.
