Barnet students received their A and BTEC level results yesterday, but with grades determined differently due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This year, students were graded by teachers and only rated on what they learned, not what they might have missed.
Teachers based their judgments of student performance on a range of evidence, which could include practice exams, non-exam (lecture) assessment in some subjects, as well as other classroom assessments.
The teachers used an evidence-based approach, so that students, their parents and guardians, and anyone using the grades assigned this summer could see how their final grade was achieved and know that it was determined objectively.
Among the schools celebrating their students’ results were St Mary’s and St John’s CE Schools in Hendon, who said they “are bursting with pride as we share an outstanding set of A-level results”.
According to their Grade 13 scoreboard, 100% of students achieved an A * or A in complementary math.
St Andrew the Apostle School near Whetstone also celebrated the “outstanding” results achieved by A-level students this year.
In total, 25 percent of all grades awarded were A * / A while 54 percent of all grades awarded were A * / A / B.
Principal Indira Warwick said: “It is a privilege to see how well our Grade 13 students have done, they fully deserve every happiness. ”
Barnet City Councilor David Longstaff, Chair of the Children, Education and Safeguarding Committee, said: “We also want to congratulate and congratulate all of the students who receive their A and BTEC level results today. Despite the challenges, we are confident that our students have succeeded this year with the qualifications, life skills and practical experience to prepare them for their next stage of education and for the jobs and industries of the future.
