What do we do if we can’t collect the results on the day?

We are unable to release results on the phone or by email.

If you are unable to collect results in person you can

  • either hand in an SAE – A5 size – with candidate number in bottom left hand corner – to the school office before results day
  • or ask someone to collect results on your behalf and give them a signed letter of authorisation (with your candidate number listed) to bring in on results day.

Results can also be collected after results day.

  • From 17 August until 25 August they can be collected from the Exams Office.
  • Tuesday 29 – Friday 1 September results will be in the School Office.
  • From 4 September they can be collected from the Exams Office.

 

What do we do if we’re unhappy about the results?

Y13

Y13 who are reliant on the result for a university place can ask for a Priority Remark which should be returned before the university admission deadlines. Otherwise go for an ordinary remark.

Y12/13

If the results are not what you expected you are advised to apply for a Priority Copy of the paper which can then be shown to staff and their advice sought about asking for a remark

It is always advisable to get a copy first as remarks only occasionally result in an improved overall grade and sometimes result in lower marks.

GCSE

If the results are not what you expected you are advised to apply for a Priority Copy of the paper  – Edexcel, OCR and WJEC only  – which can then be shown to staff and their advice sought about asking for a remark.

For AQA and CIE photocopies can only be requested at the same time as a remark so it is advised that you seek advice from staff about a remark as they will have a breakdown of marks for each unit and can advise appropriately.

If you do decide to query results you will need to complete the relevant form and return it to Mrs Ainsworth IN PERSON by the deadlines below.

Please note that Controlled Assessment/Coursework modules cannot be remarked.

DEADLINES:

Priority Remarks (Y13):                             24 August (10am)

Priority Photocopies (Y12/13)                    24 August (10am)

Priority Photocopies (Y11)                         30 August (Noon)

Ordinary Remarks (all years)                    18 September

Please do not hand forms in to the office as deadlines may be missed.
