Ofqual have published this. Does this mean English Language and Maths will be marked with leniency?

'A small number of students will take autumn exams starting next week. These exams, with the exception of the usual November sittings for GCSE English language and maths, are for those students who want to improve on their grade from summer 2021 or who had planned to enter in summer 2021 but were unable to obtain a teacher assessed grade. For this reason, exam boards will seek to align autumn 2021 grading with summer 2021. This is the same approach we took in autumn 2020, when grading was aligned to summer 2020.'

Yes it means the grade boundaries will be lower overall in comparison to the 2019 exams so more people can get higher grades
