Education Minister makes statement on appeals for A levels, AS, Skills Challenge Certificate and GCSEs.

EDUCATION Minister, Kirsty Williams has made a Statement on appeals for A levels, AS, Skills Challenge Certificate and GCSEs.

The Minister said: “Earlier this week I directed Qualifications Wales to broaden the grounds for appeal for A levels, AS, Skills Challenge Certificate and GCSEs.

“Today, they have now confirmed what this means for students. I accept that learners wanted and needed more clarity, and I believe this achieves that.

“Qualification Wales and the WJEC will share the full details, but appeals can now be made where there is evidence of internal assessments that has been judged by the school or college to be at a higher grade than the grade they have been awarded.

“There is a guarantee that no-one will receive a lower grade after appeal and all appeals are free.”
