Results day is fast approaching for students who sat A levels and GCSEs this summer – the first after the return of exams post pandemic.

Earlier in the summer, we highlighted how the pandemic impacted education for these year groups, with year 13 students sitting their first formal exams after their GCSEs were cancelled back in 2020, and both year groups having faced considerable disruption.

We also highlighted early warning signs that there may be fewer places available at university this year, particularly at the most competitive institutions and courses.

Now, in our research briefing released today, we have been able to dig deeper into the pandemic’s continued impact on students sitting exams this year, looking at the scale of ongoing disruption and the views of both students and teachers on the mitigations in place.
