If you cannot collect your results in person, you can either nominate someone else to collect your results on your behalf. This nomination must be confirmed in writing on a signed letter or email from the student. Alternatively, we can post your results home (if you provide a stamped addressed envelope to the exams officer before 21st July). Results cannot be given out over the telephone or via email in any circumstances.

 

Post Results Service Please note – there is a deadline for both of these services.

Review of Marking

Following receipt of your results you may wish to have some marks reviewed particularly if your mark is close to the grade boundary above. This is not a remark but a review to ensure the mark scheme has been applied correctly. In the first instance, please discuss this with your teacher.  If you wish to go ahead with a review you must complete and sign a review of marking form where you will confirm you understand there is a risk of marks going down, staying the same or going up.  There is a charge by the Exam Board per paper. Payment will need to be made upfront to the school at the time the form is submitted; a refund will be given if the grade goes up.

Access to Scripts

Your subject teacher may ask you if they can request a copy of your exam script from the Exam Board for use in the classroom to show examples of work to other students. You may also wish to request a copy of your paper.  In either instance you will need to sign a form that you authorise the request.  If the schools is requesting the script for teaching and learning purposes they will cover the cost and you must authorise permission for your script to be used for teaching and learning pruposes.  If you wish to request the script and there will be a charge by the Exam Board payable on submission of the request form.

Certificates

Certificates from Summer 2021 have been issued to students by royal mail signed for delivery or handed out in person. If you have not received your certificates, please contact the exams officer, Mrs R Passey.

Note: certificates cannot be re-issued, and it is your responsibility to keep them safe. If they are lost, you will need to apply direct to the exam boards and they charge a fee for replacement.
