Re: Year 11 GCSE and AiFE Examinations Results 2020
The results for GCSE Exam and AiFE (Award in Financial Education) will be available for collection on Thursday 20 August 2020, from 11am. All exam results not collected on results day will be posted to your home address that day. Please let reception know if your home address has changed since you left school.
I appreciate that it has been a difficult and challenging time for you with the cancelling of the summer exams and you may have concerns about the GCSE results this year.
The exam boards asked schools to consider what grade a student would have achieved if they had sat the exams as planned. We were instructed to take into consideration all the available evidence, including the student’s effort and attitude in lessons, quality of work submitted, including homework, as well as any assessments completed. It was a robust and thorough process and calculated grades were submitted in June. The exam boards are now in the process of standardising the grades, using a model developed with Ofqal. The final results will consider the schools previous results, KS2 results and the national levels in each subject. The final grade issued to students could be higher or lower that the grade submitted by the school.
To maintain social distancing and to limit the number of students on the premises we will be operating a drive-thru system to collect your results. We ask that you remain in your car and we will be give give your exam results to you through the window. When you have collected your results please leave the school premises.
We are asking you all to come to school to collect your exam results in a time slot, according to your surname as follows. Please only come at the allotted time.
Surname (Starting with the letter)
A - H
11.00 – 11.30
J - S
11.30 – 12.00
T – W and those students who are unable to make earlier slots.
12.00 – 12.30
If you are unable to collect your exam results on Thursday 20 August, you can authorise a designated person to pick them up for you. However, Mrs Campbell, the Exams Officer, will require a written letter from you authorising the designated person to pick up your exam results. Please ask the designated person to bring ID to confirm their identity.
If you are unhappy with your GCSE grade you can only appeal to check if it has been an administration error.
However, there may be an opportunity to resit GCSE examinations in November. We are awaiting further confirmation from the exam boards on how the resits will be administered, and in which subjects they will be offering resit examinations. We hope that Further information will be provided by the examination boards which we will share with you on results day.
Finally, we are working on how we can organise a presentation evening, which is usually held in November, where you can collect your GCSE certificates and we can celebrate your achievements. As soon as we confirm the arrangements we will be in touch.
Certificates are normally not available until November, a presentation evening is given to celebrate this.
Year 11 Students can call the School to arrange collection after this date.
You will be given an individual timetable showing your exams in March.
All information must be checked thoroughly including personal details and exam entries
Check with the Exams Officer as soon as possible if:
a) you are unsure about anything
b) you think you have any EXAM CLASHES
c) you are expecting to take exams soon but have not received a timetable of your exams
