Latest Update on BTEC Exams at CBC

Vocational exams during this half term

The Government announced on the 5th January 2021 that colleges can decide whether exams ought to go ahead or not during the current period of lockdown, until February half term (w/c 15th February 2021). The College has considered in detail whether it is possible to run these exams safely for students, invigilators and teachers and whether any student or a group of students would be disadvantaged by not completing them. The guiding principle for the College is that students must not be disadvantaged, including the considerable additional emotional and mental pressure as well as the safety of students and staff. For this reason, we have decided that the majority of exams for this term will be cancelled.  For further clarification of the BTEC exams that are cancelled, please see the table below for the list:

With regard to GCSE summer exams in English and Maths, the Department for Education have confirmed that they are not going ahead.

Whilst we continue to monitor further guidance from the Government, it is absolutely essential that all learners continue to attend their remote learning sessions and continue their learning so that they can progress as normal.

Moving forward, as the Government issues further guidance and any other changes, we will communicate them with you via the College’s website at https://www.centralbeds.ac.uk/coronavirus
