Message from Bridgwater and Taunton College
Friday, March 20, 2020
Following the governments update on the evening of 18 March, scheduled GSCE exams for May and June will not be going ahead as planned. Therefore, those people who already have a conditional offer will have their offer updated to unconditional.
For those who are due to be interviewed, please don’t worry, our teams will contact you by phone for a conversation about the course and your predicated grades. You will be offered a place at the College for September.
We are looking forward to the College returning to normal and seeing you in September. If you have an offer, please take a look at our enrichment pages and sign up for one of our academies due to start in September as usual. In the meantime, we will continue to keep you updated. Rest assured, you will have a place at College and we are already planning how we will ensure the start of term is as smooth as possible!
GCSEs have been cancelled. Can I still get a place in College?
Yes, you will get a place at College. We are working with the Department of Education to fully understand how you will be graded for your GSCEs, but in the meantime, we will be offering you an unconditional place at College based on your interview and predicted grades.
Will this impact the application process for future students?
This won’t impact our application process for future students: interviews will take place by phone and you should apply in the normal way. Any potential student who can’t participate in an interview because of illness can have their interview rearranged.
GCSEs have been cancelled. What will my grades be?
We are working with the exam boards and the Department of Education to understand what their plans are. We will update you as soon as they make an announcement.
