Statement from Deputy Matt Fallaize, President of the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture:
'Students and parents will appreciate that in relation to exam results we are in the hands of decisions being made by the UK Government. Exam regulator Ofqual has today announced that students should be awarded grades based on their centre assessment - that is, the grade their school or college estimated was the grade they would most likely have achieved in their exam - or the grade adjusted by Ofqual, whichever is higher. Ofqual will inform UCAS directly where a student's results have gone up as a result.
'The Sixth Form Centre has emailed students today to explain the changes and will endeavour to send them their centre assessed grades as soon as possible, preferably tomorrow. We will recalculate our island-wide A-Level pass rates and will issue updated results shortly. The Guernsey Institute/College of Further Education will also contact any students whose grades change as a result of today's announcement.
'Earlier today the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture announced that Year 11 students who have been offered course places at the Sixth Form Centre or The Guernsey Institute/College of Further Education will be able to progress on to their chosen areas of study irrespective of their final issued grades from the national bodies. Students should attend their schools according to each school's guidance to receive results on Thursday.'
