What will Results Days on 13 and 20 August look like?

Unfortunately, with the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be hosting physical Results Days at college this academic year.  We ask students to not come to college as they will not be able to receive their results on campus.

You will be able to view your results online through Exam Net and students will receive paper copies of their results in the post.

How will I receive my results?

For results being published on the 13 and 20 August we will release the results through Exam Net, this is our new online platform. We will also put these results in the post to your home address.

Any results that are not published on these two dates, we will be posting grade directly to your home address at the earliest opportunity.

How will I check my results online?

For those learners due to access results through Exam Net, you will receive an email about this before August 13. You will be able to access your results via the Exam Net website (please note, this link will be added for you shortly).

When will I receive my actual certificate?

Most certificates will be sent to us from the awarding organisations in October. We will then send these to your home address at the earliest opportunity.

What happens if I have moved address and not let the college know?

If you have moved address since you enrolled, or have forgotten to notify us of any change of address, please can we request that you update your address with us as soon as possible. To do this:

How were my grades calculated?

Depending on the qualification, the centre assessed grade process that we were obliged to follow would differ. The A Level and GCSE centre assessed grade process was stipulated by Ofqual. You can find the guidance that we followed here.

Other centre assessed grade processes that we followed for other qualifications were similar in many aspects to that used for the A Level and GCSEs. If you would like to know more about the centre calculated grade process we used for your qualifications, we are more than happy to direct you to it.

Be assured, any centre assessed grade process that we followed was designed to ensure a fair outcome was provided to you. We are extremely confident in the processes we have followed to ensure that the process of centre assessed grade calculation has been as fair and robust as possible.

What happens if I don’t get the grades I expected?

If you’re disappointed with your results, here’s what you can do next:

Who do I talk to if I want to appeal my result?

Please note, that for most qualifications, your awarding body will have finalised your grade after your teacher's predictions according to pre-determined formulas.

Your teacher has no influence regarding your final grade and cannot change the grade you have been given by the awarding body.

However, if you wish to appeal your grade, as soon as we receive the appropriate appeal processes for each awarding body, we will share these links with you here.

We want to reassure you that if you do not get the grades you were hoping for that progression is still possible! We will support students every step of the way in achieving their goals.
