Statement from Russell Group universities on the 2020 exam grading system

The Russell Group of Universities welcomes the clarity provided by exam regulators and awarding bodies across the UK over how they will grade candidates who would have taken exams in A levels, AS levels, GCSEs, (including their International variants), Scottish Nationals, Highers/Advanced Highers and other qualifications such as the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Students can rest assured that results provided through these processes will be treated exactly the same as in any other year by our members so learners can still progress to the university and course of their choice, subject to achieving the required grades. Applicants should liaise with individual universities for further guidance on their processes.
