Public examinations for GCSE, A level and the summer series of the Vocational qualifications were cancelled by the Department for Education this year and replaced with a system of Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) alongside a Quality Assurance process overseen by the Examination Boards.
For further information please read Ofqual’s guide to how grades will be awarded this summer which can be found here here.
A student guide can be found here.
A reminder that the examination results will be available in school from:
8:30am on Tuesday 10th August (for A Level and Level 3 vocational qualifications) and
9.00am on Thursday 12th August (For GCSE and Level 2 vocational qualifications).
Staff will be available in school on both dates to support students with UCAS or results queries.
Although everyone has been working hard to make sure you are issued with the correct grades on results day, there is also an appeals system as a safety net to fix any genuine errors that were not identified earlier on. The appeals process for England is described here and we recommend that you read this document carefully before you make any appeal so you decide what your next steps might be:
For information about the appeals process, please click on the ‘Appeals’ button on the side of this webpage. The ‘‘What to do if you feel an error has been made…’ document is the best place to start and includes all the necessary information about the process and the key deadlines.
