exam info

2nd June 2020
From Miss Rowlands, teacher of Religious Studies

Dear Student,

I hope you and your family are well.

We are now in a position to share the process for awarding Higher Project grades with you. I appreciate that waiting to find out this information has been very frustrating, and thank you for your understanding over the past few months.

AQA have now confirmed that grades for the HPQ will be awarded in the same way as GCSE grades. Please do not worry if you have not fully completed your project -this will not put you at a disadvantage. You can find out more information about the grade awarding process in Mr Dickinson’s letter of 27th April.

If you have any further questions you can get in touch with me at cowleycandbeliefsdepartment@sthelens.org.uk

I hope you have an enjoyable summer and look forward to seeing many of you in the Sixth Form in September.

Miss Rowlands
