Information for Year 13

07 May 2020: INFORMATION ON ALL COLLEGE COURSES

  1. All Year 13 A level and GCSE students need do no more work towards examinations or coursework.
  2. Students who have nearly completed high-quality BTEC/CTEC units or any other non A level coursework should finish off the final details and submit that work straight away.
  3. Any other outstanding BTEC/ CTEC unit/coursework does now not need to be completed, just as we have said  previously for A level and GCSE students
  4. Final year BTEC/CTEC students who might be in first year classes or Year 12 students who are leaving at the end of this year will have their work assessed in the same way as U6 students
  5. ADVICE TO YEAR 12 BTEC AND CTEC STUDENTS: The exam boards have announced that you will be receiving predicted grades for any units that were due to be submitted after lock-down. (20th March).  This means that teachers will advise you to stop working on those units now. Any work due before lock-down (20th March) must still be completed and submitted.  If you are behind on any of this work you must complete this as a priority as failure to submit this work will mean that you are unlikely to progress to Year 13. Your teachers will now be setting new work to prepare you for Year 13, it is vital that you engage with all online lessons and activities and keep up with this work. Failure to do so will mean you are unable to progress onto Year 13.
  6. The College will submit Centre Assessed Grades to the examination Boards by the end of May; we have been instructed by government bodies that we are not allowed to discuss the grading process or grades with students, Parents/Carers or carers, but we will, of course, submit the fairest and most appropriately positive grades we can, reflecting the brilliant grades Woking College students typically achieve.
  7. Year 12 students should, of course, keep working according to teacher-set programmes.
