Education Minister Peter Weir has welcomed the decision by the NI examinations body, CCEA, that robust student prior performance from mock examinations will be used as evidence in any appeal.

The Minister said: “This has been an incredibly difficult year for all of our pupils, and in particular for those taking GCSEs, AS and A levels.

“I have made it clear that I do not want to see any pupil disadvantaged as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. At the same time, it is important that qualification standards are maintained.

“This year, the appeals process for pupils is free. As part of the appeals process, CCEA will now consider mock examinations and GCSE units already completed.

“I hope that these steps will provide reassurance to those students who are awaiting their examination results and I want to thank CCEA for all their work on this issue.”
