Tuesday 10th August is level 3 results day (A levels and vocational courses).
Thursday 12th August is level 2 results day (GCSEs and vocational courses).
On both days, we plan to email these results out at about 8.30. A number of schools use the same mass mailing system, and last year the results took up to 90 minutes to appear in inboxes. Prior to the issue of certificates in the autumn, these results slips are proof of results for all educational institutions.
In the case of any difficulties, our exams office will also be open to print out results slips from 9.00am.
As befits a very different exam season, there is a different appeals process this year. The JCQ has published a helpful short document for students explaining the process. There is a slightly longer document with more detail and example case studies also available.
We have copies of the appeals form on our website. A Word version is available here for candidates who wish to complete using a computer, and a pdf version here, for those who wish to print out and complete by hand. Please note the deadline for a priority appeal is this Friday, 13th August. Priority appeals are limited to students in year 13 who have not secured their first choice at university. The deadline for non-priority appeals is Thursday 19th August.
Unlike in normal years when we have the benefit of student marks and grade boundaries to guide decisions about which grades to query, it is important to note that the result of an appeal in 2021 is that grades could go down. If a grade does go down after an appeal, it will not be possible to revert to the original grade.
Students in year 11 will receive an email at lunchtime on Thursday from the sixth form team with further details on the online enrolment process.
With best wishes for this week.
