Coronavirus and summer 2020 exams

All GCSE, AS and A-level exams planned for this summer (both in the UK and overseas) will no longer be going ahead.

However, we’re working hard to make sure that young people who were due to take exams still achieve the qualifications they need to progress to the next stage of their lives.

Wellbeing

We understand this is an unsettling time for everyone, especially after working hard to prepare for exams.

If you need advice or support try talking to your teacher, parent or friends about how you are feeling.

Alternatively, there are many helpful services available, such as Childline, Young minds and the Mental Health Foundation – all of which offer confidential advice and support.

A message from our CEO

Due to the coronavirus, there won’t be any AQA exams this summer in the UK or overseas.

We’re working tirelessly with regulators, government and other exam boards to make sure young people who were due to take exams still achieve the qualifications they need to progress to the next stage of their lives – and that all the hard work our students and teachers have already put in is properly rewarded.

We’re here to support you through these extraordinary times, and we’ll be updating this page with the latest information and advice as soon as it’s available.

This – like the coronavirus itself – is an unprecedented situation for all of us. But our commitment to helping young people to realise their potential hasn’t changed, and never will.

Please do take care of yourself, your family and friends.

Mark Bedlow, CEO
