Recent changes to your summer exams

The UK Government has announced that teachers' assessed grades will be used to replace cancelled GCSEs, AS and A-level exams this summer, and we realise how this is yet another disruption to your education. If you’re a BTEC student, you may be looking to your school or college to understand how your assessments will continue as planned, but we still recognise your learning experience has been anything but normal. 

While the government works with Ofqual to ensure a fair outcome for all students, you might be concerned about how your hard work will be assessed. We are committed to a flexible admissions process that recognises the challenges you have overcome this year. Each application to DMU is reviewed on an individual basis – we look at you as a person as well as your academic success.

Your DMU Future

We’ve all overcome a lot recently and adapted to a new way of living, so if this is the year you’ve decided to start, or continue, your higher education journey, we want you to know that DMU is here for you every step of the way.
