Our Exams - > click on the Find Out More button in the Covid-19 banner-> which takes you to the UK Updates page. Click on the Adapted Exams Here link in the first paragraph. And then click on the Guidance For Adapted Exams (2020) link.
The adapted exams are the ones just for year 13 pupils this year. The new online ones are the ones which are performance only, 4 pieces for all grades and no supporting tests, available from August.
