'We note the announcement from the Secretary of State for Education, confirming that exams will not take place this summer and teacher assessment will be used instead. This does not move us any further forward from the statement we issued yesterday, when our Strategic Advisor, as the most senior educationalist supporting the Committee, stated that we need to wait for further guidance from the exam boards. That may take several days to come through, however students and parents can be reassured that we will inform them of the details as soon as we have that clarity.

'All we can say at this stage is that in any situation where formal examinations are not possible, using the professional skills and expertise of our educationalists will always be welcomed. Staff in schools and the College of Further Education know best how students have performed and demonstrated last year that assessment can be used successfully, if necessary.'
