2020 Examination Results
As you will be aware, the system in place for qualification results in August 2020 is different to previous years. On this page you will find all the details you should require regarding your results for this year and your next steps.
Qualification results will be published on the following dates:
Key Stage 5 (A Level and Level 3 vocational qualifications): Thursday 13th August 2020
Key Stage 4 (GCSE and Level 1/2 vocational qualifications): Thursday 20th August 2020
Process for Receiving Results
- Results will be emailed to students (in the form of a PDF attachment on the email), directly to their school email address.
- Please check that you can access your school email account as soon as possible and report any issues to the central ICT team at firstname.lastname@example.org at the earliest opportunity.
- Please do not come in to your school building on results day – you will have the opportunity to book a pre-allocated meeting with a member of staff for the day after you receive your results. Details of how to do this will be included in the email you receive with your results.
What process was used in awarding qualification results this year?
As you will probably be aware, the system used to determine qualification results this year has been subject to several changes. All institutions in Trinity MAT followed a detailed and diligent process of submitting centre assessed grades to the awarding bodies, in line with the guidance provided by Ofqual and the Department for Education at the time – this included a rigorous process of internal moderation. Further details of the full DfE guidance to schools can be viewed here.
After reading the above, you will be aware that the final decision on your grades has been made by the awarding bodies in accordance with strict guidelines from Ofqual, but that in the vast majority of cases this should now reflect the centre assessed grade submitted by your school. However, should you still wish to request the grades submitted to the awarding bodies by the school, you have a right to do so and can make a formal request for these grades through this form.
Please also note that due to the recent changes to the processes involved with awarding qualifications, full updated details regarding the appeals process have yet to be published by Ofqual. As any guidance on this is clarified, it is likely that any updated information for students will be available here.
If you are at the end of Year 11 or Year 13, many of you will have already decided what your next step will be and we would encourage you to make contact with the organisation you are moving to (whether that be Sixth Form, College, University, apprenticeship, employer or another) to finalise arrangements with them.
However, if your qualification results mean that you would like to look at alternative options, or indeed you have yet to make up your mind on what you would like to do next, we would encourage you to make use of the dedicated careers guidance available to our institutions. Details are specific to each organisation:
