The report, which was produced by Deloitte, highlights a number of key findings and is available on the Department’s website.



Education Minister, Peter Weir said, “I welcome the publication of this review and the findings it has outlined.

“It was important for me to commission a completely independent evaluation of awarding.

“The report recognises the extremely challenging circumstances which required the cancellation of examinations and the development of alternative awarding arrangements by CCEA. 



“However, there are a number of areas where the report identifies important considerations which will be reflected in the development of alternative awarding arrangements for 2021. 

“I know that students, teachers and parents are waiting to hear about these alternative arrangements.



“And I hope to announce proposals in the coming weeks,” he added.
