Message from Ofqual on the Manchester tragedy

Dear exam stakeholder group member,


Following the tragic events in Manchester last night, we have issued the following statement:


Many students and teachers are likely to have been affected by the tragic events in Manchester last night. Head teachers are best placed to decide whether exams should go ahead as planned.


We will consider with the exam boards how the provisions that are normally made for students who are unable to sit their exams when planned, or who take their exams but whose performance might be affected, will be applied.


Students and their parents should seek advice and information from their schools. Our thoughts are with everyone affected.


If there are any issues that this tragic event causes that you think we need to be aware of then please do let me know.


Richard Garrett | Director of Strategic Relationships for GQ, Ofqual
