GCSE 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 make sure you can progress onto Logic Sixth Form or another post-16 provision as planned.

Results day is the same date as it would have been, which is Thursday 20th August. You can pick up your results from Logic. There will be 4 collection points and we hope to be outside. You will be asked to come in to collect your results according to your surname (last name): A – L, please arrive between 9.00 and 10.00am. M – Z please arrive between 10.00 and 11.00am. We have staggered the pick-up time in order to stop overcrowding.

Please keep an eye on our website in case we have to make any changes to arrangements.

Those of you who are coming to Logic 6th Form will be asked to come into the building after collecting your results, so that we can check your courses and confirm your application. Details of the start of the new term will be given to you at this point.

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 j.peirce@springwestacademy.org with the details. We can 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.

How have my grades been calculated?

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 order of students by performance, for each grade.

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 20th?

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.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday 20th August. If you have any concerns we will be around to support you on Thursday and Friday – 20th and 21st August.
