Pearson exam board statement

The UK Government has announced that UK schools will close this week and that exams will not be held in May and June. Given the challenging circumstances we all currently face, Pearson accepts this decision. Our focus is now on supporting learners to achieve the qualifications they need to progress to the next stage of their lives. We are working around the clock with the Department for Education, Ofqual and the other awarding bodies to understand the detail of this decision and will share information with our learners and centres as soon as we can. This is an unprecedented situation and we understand that it could cause uncertainty and worry for learners and teachers alike, but please bear with us. We will update you as soon as we have more information to share – visit the Pearson Edexcel website for the latest news as it’s available, and see the support we have available for schools below. Thank you for your patience until we can bring more updates to you. My thoughts and best wishes are with all of you. Sharon Hague,  Senior Vice President, Schools
