Guys I've been hearing that there are secure mock papers (potentially 2020 papers) for A levels and that teachers will be using these instead of a range of past paper questions. Does anybody know if this is accurate information?

There is no official news about this, apart from what we heard from the government a couple weeks ago . From this, i concluded that the papers set by the exam boards are optional for schools and colleges to use and even THEY don’t have any more info than that. My college has said we will have exams in may, but don’t know yet if they will be the ones the exam boards have set. Bit frustrating really

It will vary based on school and what evidence they think they need - I know some of my tutoring students are likely being given full October 2020 papers under exam conditions, while others aren't even being tested on the full specification so can't be given those papers, and will likely be given a mix of past papers and teacher-written questions instead.

Dk how accurate that info is lol but it seems reasonable for it to be true.
What I have heard for maths (in my school we do edexcel), is that they are creating some form of support material for schools to use in the upcoming assessments. It is unclear as of now as to what this will contain, but likelihood is that it will be past questions, secure questions and questions that never made it to past papers.

Schools will receive guidance by the end of this month anyways and I am sure the exam boards will send physical copies of these to schools rather than electronically since if its electronically, it can easily start floating around the internet.

I've heard the exams are optional. Its upto your college and teachers if they want to go through with it. But evidence will be gathered from mocks, class work, assessments and potential may exams. Good luck x
