Year 13 Exam Results letter
RE: Exam Results
I understand how unsettling the past months have been for you, since the exams were cancelled. Our overriding aim in submitting your grades, has been to be fair to all of our students. We do not want you to be disadvantaged and want to ensure you can progress onto the next stage of your life as planned.
The Results day remains on the same date, which is Thursday 13th August and you can pick up your results from Logic. There will be 4 collection points set up at the school and we hope to be outside – weather permitting.
We have staggered the pick-up times in order to stop overcrowding and will be asked to come in to collect your results according to your surname (last name):
● A – L, please arrive between 9.00am and 9.30am ● M – Z please arrive between 9.30am and 10.00am.
For anyone needing to collect GCSE Maths or English results, these will be available on Thursday 20th August and we will be using the same system.
Please keep an eye on our website in case we have to make any changes to arrangements.
No one else is allowed to collect your results without already having this approved by the Examination Officer. If you know you need someone else to collect on your behalf, please email email@example.com with the details.
We can also email you your results if no one is able to come in, but we will need you to let us know that you would like us to send them to you and the email address to use. This also must be agreed in advance with the Examinations officer.
Overleaf, there are some answered to common questions you might have. If there is anything else that we have not covered, please email me and I will attempt to answer. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like any support with any aspect of your transition into next year, please contact me and ask. We are still here to support you and no question is too small!
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday 13th August!
ACO Year 13
Answers to a few questions you may have:
How have my grades been calculated?
For A Level and BTEC Level 3 Exams, exam boards requested two pieces of information for each of your subjects, which has been based on the information we have about your work and achievements. This process was called Centre Assessed Grades:
1. The grade we believed you were most likely to achieve if teaching, learning and exams had happened as planned
2. Within each subject, the rank order of students by performance, for each subject.
We have considered a range of things like your classwork and PREP; your results in assignments and mock exams, any non-exam assessment or coursework you might or would have completed, any special access arrangements we would have been aware of and your general progress during your course.
This information has allowed the exam boards to standardise grades across the country to try and make sure that results are fair and that students are not advantaged or disadvantaged in any way. Please be aware that the final grade you receive is down to the exam boards, which could mean that the result we provided to the exam board may differ from the final result you are given.
Can I see the grades my school has submitted for me BEFORE results day on August 13th?
No, this information is confidential. Please don’t ask your teachers, or anyone else at your school to tell you the grades they have sent to the exam boards or where they have placed you in the ranked order. They are currently not allowed to share this with you.
Please be reassured that the grades you get this summer will look exactly the same as in previous years, and they will have equal status with universities, colleges and employers, to help you move forward in your lives as planned.
Will universities and employers treat my grades in the same way as if I’d sat an exam?
Yes. The government has stated that no students will be disadvantaged by not sitting an exam.
If you have any concerns, we will be around to support you on Thursday 13th August.
