Ofqual statement on Manchester incident: advice for schools and students


Ofqual issued the following statement on 23 May 2017 following the terrorist attack in Manchester which will affect the lives of many young people and their families: 

Many students and teachers are likely to have been affected by the tragic events in Manchester last night. Head teachers are best placed to decide whether exams should go ahead as planned.

We will consider with the exam boards how the provisions that are normally made for students who are unable to sit their exams when planned, or who take their exams but whose performance might be affected, will be applied.

Students and their parents should seek advice and information from their schools.

Our thoughts are with everyone affected.
