It follows a recall petition signed by a majority of parties to return ahead of the end of summer recess.
The Speaker Alex Maskey confirmed the decision in a letter to MLAs today.
Politicians from across the divide have called on Education Minister Peter Weir to reverse his decision over A-Level results set by CCEA.
They say he should scrap this and revert to the predicted results set by teachers and schools.
In England, an announcement is expected later this afternoon on exam results after calls for a U-turn over A-Level results.
SDLP MLA and the party’s education spokesperson Daniel McCrossan said here was a “huge and considerable question” to be asked about A and AS-level grades.
“After digging his heels in, I welcome the fact Minister Weir has realised his algorithm does not stand up to scrutiny and decided to trust our teacher and their professional judgement,” he said.
“However, while this is a positive move, it is not the end of the journey.
“The SDLP will continue to fight for A-level students, many of whom feel their futures have been stolen from them and been awarded grades that do not accurately reflect their ability or work ethic.”
Mr McCrossan said the assembly had been recalled and his party would be fighting for a “just solution” for A-level students.
TUV leader Jim Allister has said the education minister has “dug himself into an impossible situation”.
“He is right to accept teacher graces for GCSEs but the follow-through logic is that if you accept the professionalism and dependability of teacher assessing at GCSE, then you cannot, in the next breath, say that we don’t accept that at A-level,” he said.
Mr Allister said Minister Peter Weir needed to “complete the U-turn that he started and recognise that the only way out of this is to honour the assessments made by the professional teachers who know these pupils, not some algorithm”.
He said the victims of the situation are young people at A-level and this needed to be addressed.Tags:
