Results Day

Accessing Your Results

You will be able to access your results at 8:00am by clicking on the link below. 

Please note: The College will not be opening for students to collect their results. 

Ofqual has published resources for students receiving their qualifications this summer. These resources include a student guide to post-16 qualification results that provides you with additional information to help you understand how their results have been awarded, what to expect on results day, and the options available to you if they are unhappy with your result.


Results Update

Following Ofqual’s announcement that A-level and GCSE students are to receive Centre Assessment Grades, Edexcel have reviewed the impact on BTEC students and taken on board feedback from teachers, schools and colleges. Following their review, they have decided to apply Ofqual’s principles for students receiving BTECs this summer.

This means they will now be regrading all the following BTECs – BTEC Level 3 Nationals (2010 QCF and 2016 RQF), BTEC Level 1/2 Tech Awards, BTEC Level 2 Technicals and BTEC Level 1/2 Firsts.

They have therefore asked schools and colleges not to issue any BTEC L1 and L2 results on Thursday 20th August as these results will be reviewed and where appropriate, regraded.

On the 17th of August, the government announced further changes to the way that grades will be awarded this summer. 

Ofqual has now announced that after reflection, the best way forward is to award grades on the basis of what teachers submitted. The switch to centre assessment grades will apply to both AS and A-levels and to the GCSE results which students will receive later this week.

It has now been decided that students will be awarded their centre assessment for this summer – that is, the grade their school or college estimated was the grade they would most likely have achieved in their exam – or the moderated (awarded) grade, whichever is higher.

We made your centre assessment grade available on the results portal last week so you should be able to see your centre assessed grade and your awarded grade so you will be able to see which is higher.

The awarding bodies will now need to issue new results files to confirm final results and at that point, we will update the results portal with your final awarded grade and we will send out a notification via email and update the website to confirm when this has been completed.


The Exams Team will publish information relating to the collection of your examination certificates on the College website. We anticipate that this will take place between December 2020 and January 2021. If you wish for your certificates to be posted to you, please email and a member of the team will endeavour to arrange this for you. Please note, there is a cost for this service. 

The College is obliged to retain examination certificates for twelve months. After this period any uncollected certificates may be destroyed. 

Exam Resits

The autumn exam series is an opportunity for students who either were unable to receive a calculated grade in the summer or who want to try to improve their grade, to sit their exams.

If you wish to resit your examinations, you may request a resit by emailing with your name, student ID and the exam(s) you wish to resit. It is, however, highly recommended that in the first instance you discuss this decision with either your teachers or a College Careers Advisor. No requests for Level 3 resits will be accepted after 12:00 noon on the 31st August

The dates of all examinations can be found by students on the relevant examination board website.


Ofqual has outlined that students cannot challenge the grade and rank awarded to them by the College, unless there is evidence of bias, discrimination or any other factor that suggests the College did not behave with care or integrity when determining the centre assessment grade and/or rank order information, this should be raised in the first instance with the College by emailing

Ofqual has published a student guide to appeals and malpractice or maladministration complaints in summer 2020. This information will help you understand if you have a reason to make an appeal or a complaint about malpractice or maladministration, including concerns about bias or discrimination. 


Clearing is the process that universities and colleges use to fill any places that they still have available on their courses and can be a good way for you to find an alternative course or institution. From the 6th July to 20th October, you can apply for a course using Clearing if you’re not already holding an offer from a university or college, and the course still has places available. You can use clearing if: 

  • You are applying after the 30th June. 
  • You did not receive any offers (or you do not wish to accept any of your offers). 
  • You did not meet the conditions of your offers.
  • You declined your ‘firm’ place using the ‘decline my place’ button in Track.
