GCSE Results 2020
Information about the GCSE results awarded this year can be found via the FAQs below.
How have my grades been calculated?
These grades are Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs), i.e. they have been produced by the school. As per Government guidance, these “reflect a fair, reasonable and carefully considered judgement of the most likely grade a student would have achieved if they had sat their exams this summer and completed any non-exam assessment.” This professional judgement was derived from evidence held within the centre (such as portfolio assessments and mock exam results) and had been reviewed by subject teachers and their Heads of Department. CAGs were internally moderated by Senior Leadership and externally by Tudor Park Education Trust to ensure accuracy and consistency.
Is this my final exam result?
Yes. Unless we are informed that any one of your grades were moderated up by OFQUAL. In which case the highest grade is the one that counts. Our understanding is that most changes made by OFQUAL were made to lower grades not to improve them.
What are my options if I’m not happy with my grades
If you feel that the CAG does not reflect your ability, you can sit your exam in October. Further details on this will be issued by the Department for Education in due course.
For those students attending Logic we have allocated space in timetables to facilitate this. We will be highly flexible in allowing students to start their desired courses in anticipation of the results of the October exam series. If other methods of appeal are released by the Department for Education then we will keep you informed.
Where can I find further information about the Government policy on exam results?
