As you are aware the examination process this year has been very different due to the Covid-19 outbreak, results this year are based on Centre Assessment Grades (CAGs) which have been moderated and adjusted by exam boards to ensure that the process is robust and fair. Results will be released this year on Thursday 20 August 2020. The distribution of results this year will be electronic, students will be able to download their results from 8.00am through the trust Beehive system. We are not intending to print results slips and hand out as we have done in previous years, students should access their results where possible at home through Beehive as outlined above. If you are likely to have difficulty with this process and will be unable to access results electronically, we can provide results on-site in person (in a socially distanced way) if needed. Please contact us in advance of the day by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can make the necessary arrangements and ensure that results are available for collection.
There will be staff available on the day to offer guidance and support as needed, you will be able to contact us by phone on results day if you need assistance. There are several key changes to the examination and results process this year, which is a departure from the normal process as in previous years. Most notably, the post results services will operate differently as there is no exam script that can be reviewed and remarked. We have compiled some key questions and answers which you can find on the document linked below, which should address likely queries that you may have. We have also put the links to further Ofqual information below should you wish to find out more.
We know this process has been hugely different this year and may have caused some anxiety, please rest assured that we have worked extremely hard to ensure that you are awarded qualifications in-line with your hard work and efforts. Some students may still wish to sit the exams, and Ofqual have announced that a full suite of exams will be available in the Autumn term in November which will allow you to sit an exam and be awarded a grade through examination, they will start on Monday 2 November and finish on Monday 23 November. The deadlines for entry for GCSE will be (except English Language and Mathematics) – 18 September • GCSE (English Language and Mathematics) – 4 October. The exam boards will post the timetables on their websites and contact centres about entries in due course. You will be able to enter for exams at your current school. Details of fees and arrangements will be communicated in the Autumn term. The Autumn exam series will be pure exam based with no coursework/NEA elements, except for Art and Design. Exam results awarded in Autumn will be additional to the Summer exam result and will not supersede the award (you will hold both grades separately).You can read more information about Autumn exams by following the links below.
You may have other questions about exams which we would be happy to discuss with you further; if there are specific questions you still have please contact the exams team for assistance.
