This is the second year where examinations have been delivered differently due to the pandemic. Students have been awarded grades by teachers this year, based on the evidence that they hold as part of their studies.
Schools have worked hard to maintain their education provision through virtual learning and face-to-face sessions. However, individual experiences have been disrupted while managing and protecting students and staff during the pandemic. The local education authority at the county council says schools have worked tirelessly to adapt and ensure assessments have been thoroughly carried out in light of national guidance.
Coun Patricia Bradwell, executive member for children’s services, said: “This has again been a difficult year for all students, particularly those taking their A Levels and GCSEs. These students have worked hard throughout their school careers, and I’m confident Lincolnshire will again have strong results this year. I look forward to hearing about our local successes, and we wish all our students the very best for the future.”
Heather Sandy, executive director for children’s services, added: “A lot of hard work has been put in, not just by the students, but schools and teachers as well, and I’m sure this will be reflected in this year’s results. Inevitably, there will be students that are disappointed with their grades, and I’d like to reassure them that support is available to help them take their next step, whether that’s university, employment or training.”
To help young people take their next step, Lincolnshire County Council and the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership has collated information about the excellent career opportunities available in the county. The information is available here.
Due to the changes to the results process Lincolnshire County Council will not be provided with this year’s A Level and GCSE results and will not be able to provide overall figures for the county.
