Exams 2021: How will my grades be assessed this year?

Quote:
Exams have been cancelled for the second year running due to the impact caused by coronavirus.

The government have put schools will be in charge of grades and assessments this summer in a bid to avoid the results day chaos caused by last year's controversial algorithm.

But how will this solution work and is it fair?

Proposed changes to the assessment of GCSEs, AS and A levels in 2022

GCSE
    1. Choice of topics in GCSE English literature, history, ancient history and choice of content in GCSE geography.
    2. Maths and English Literature to remain the same, with no change in the curriculum or exam structure, although a formulae sheet should be allowed in the exam room for GCSE mathematics. This is as they believe it is essential that the full curriculum is covered in these key foundational subjects.
    3. Exam boards should provide advance information about the focus of the content of the exams in all other subjects at GCSE. This advanced information will be issued in the spring term to help students to focus their revision time
    4. Proposing to allow centres to deliver practical work by demonstration or observe practical work being undertaken remotely in GCSE biology, chemistry, physics, combined science, geology and astronomy
    5. GCSE physics and combined science students should be provided with a revised equation sheet.
    6. Exams will take place at the same time as in a typical year in exam halls

A-level
    1. Exam boards should be required to provide advance information about the focus of the content of exams at both AS and A level. This advanced information will be issued in the spring term to help students to focus their revision time
    2. Changes to the assessment of art and design and to the arrangements for the delivery of science practicals.
    3. Exams will take place at the same time as in a typical year in exam halls
