A-Level and GCSE results day 2020: How will exam results day work this year?


STUDENTS in England, Wales and Northern Ireland will receive their A-level and GCSE results shortly.

This year has been different from all points of view for teachers and students, because due to the coronavirus pandemic all exams were cancelled.

Grades were based upon teacher’s predictions, which took into consideration previous performance including their GCSE results and mock exams.

When is results day?

How will I get my results?

Students will find out their results by attending schools from 8am, receiving an email or logging into an online portal.

The Government has said teachers can invite pupils into school to collect results, as long as it happens in a Covid-safe way.

All pupils have been told how to get their results, but if you are unsure you should contact your school.

How have the results been decided?

Since exams were cancelled this year, grades were decided based upon teacher’s predictions.

Normally students sit exams and results are given based upon these results and their submitted coursework.

But this year their grades are based on previous performance including their GCSE results and mock exams, as well as non-exam assessment such as coursework.

England's regulator Ofqual said the idea was to ensure confidence in the results, to give them the same value as grades from any other year.
