GCSE Results – Thursday 20th August
This year due to Covid19 and social distancing measures results day will be slightly different.
You will receive an email or letter giving you a specific time, venue and entrance to use to collect your results. You will have to come into school alone and adhere to social distancing measures and one way systems in place in and around school.
If you cannot get into school to collect your results you have the following options:
- Post Home:
Please email email@example.com to request this option.

Please email firstname.lastname@example.org from your school account with a letter naming the person you authorise to collect your results, this can be a friend, relative, neighbour. On results day the nominated person MUST bring a form of ID to confirm who they are. Results will not be given out without your written consent.
- Collect later:
Collect from reception when school re-opens in September.
Please note that results cannot be given out via telephone or email.
FAQ Exams 2020
When will I receive my results?
Results will be published on the usual days in summer.
Year 12 and 13 will be on the 13th August.
Year 11 and 10 will be on the 20th August.
How will I receive my results?
You will be given a time and room to collect your results personally. Students will need to collect their results on their own and will have to socially distance whilst doing so.
If you are unable to collect your results you can ask a family member to collect your results for you but you must sign to say you are happy for this to happen. Results can also be posted but they can not be put in the post until Thursday as we can not send out any results before the results day.
If you cannot collect your results in person but would like to use one of the other two options please contact email@example.com to discuss.
How have my results been calculated?
Your teachers have been asked to look at all evidence across from the work that you have done over the last two years and produce an estimated grade. This grade is not based upon your December mock exam results, but rather a teacher assessment of your progress in the subject overall. These grades have now been sent off to the exam boards. Exam boards are now analysing all the information in order to assign grades to all pupils.
Can I ask my teacher for my grade?
No, the guidelines state teachers are not allowed to tell pupils what grade they have submitted before results day as exam boards will increase or lower results where they see fit.
What do I do if I don’t agree with my results?
There will be a chance for students to resit exams in an additional Autumn 20 exam season or in Summer 2021 should they not be happy with the result they received or if they weren’t able to have a result provided for them in Summer 2020. There will be an appeals process that can be made to the exam board.
