Expecting results in summer 2020?

You can rest assured that SGS has submitted your provisional (centre assessment) grades and rank order to your awarding body, in accordance with the Government’s guidance.

For reasons of fairness, all awarding bodies will put provisional (centre assessment) grades through a standardisation process to ensure grading standards are consistent across all schools and colleges. So the final grades you receive will have been determined by your awarding body not SGS.

You can read the Government’s guidance on calculating grades here.

Final GCSE, AS and A Level grades will be issued to you on results day(s) in August as follows:

If you’re planning to go to University in autumn 2020

If you have applied and are planning to go to university in 2020, your level 3 results will be automatically sent to UCAS and to the Universities listed on your UCAS application form on Thursday the 13th August 2020.

The full list of qualifications that will be automatically received by UCAS and your chosen University can be viewed here.

It is important that you check this list because your chosen University may want to see proof of all the qualifications you listed in the 'Education' section of UCAS Apply.

If your university offer is conditional upon a GCSE resit, you may need to send proof of this. You will receive your GCSE resit grades at 8:00am on Thursday 20th of August. These will be emailed to your SGS email account.

You can view the status of your university offers in UCAS Track here. On level 3 results day (August 13th) it’s important that you have your UCAS Track sign in details handy because you’ll need them to view that status of your offers. If you have forgotten these details you should update them here prior to August 13th.

What should you do if you haven’t received your results?

Firstly, don’t panic! This is a very unusual year and Coronavirus/ Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound effect of the normal examination process. All Universities, schools and colleges are working hard to reduce the impact upon every learner in the UK and to ensure that you are able to progress onto the next stage of your education and training.

If you’re planning on going to University in the autumn of 2020 and you haven’t received you’re Level 3 or A Level results by 9:00 am on the 13th of August – Firstly, check UCAS Track here to see if your results have been sent to UCAS. If your results have not been received by UCAS contact us directly, by calling: 0117 909 2357 or 0117 909 2256 (Filton Campus) or by emailing [email protected]

What happens if you don’t get the results you were hoping for?

At SGS we’re offering unconditional places to all full-time applicants, so the grades you receive will not prevent you from staying on at College. A full list of the courses we are offering in 2020-21 can be accessed here.

If you haven’t already applied for a place at SGS in September 2020, you can book an appointment for Information, Advice and Guidance Sessions here.

If you’re still concerned about your results

On results day, the awarding bodies will provide information about results and what you can do if you have a concern about a grade you have been awarded.

You can also ask us to check if the results you receive are correct and to provide you with information about the opportunity to re-take an exam in the autumn 2020 series or in summer 2021.

The fees for resitting any of your qualifications will be published on results day and the deadlines for advising us that you want to re-sit can be found here.

You cannot appeal directly to your awarding body or against your centre assessed grades and position in the rank order.

But you might be able to appeal your grades through us if they feel the process this summer was not followed correctly in your case.

For queries about your results, you can email us at: [email protected] or [email protected]

When will you receive your Certificates?

This depends upon your awarding body and when they send your certificates to us.

Generally, certificates are not available until much later in the year, so the only thing you’ll receive on results day will be a notification of the overall grade you have been awarded (and this is what we will email to you on days identified above).

Once we receive your certificates we will send them to you at the address we have on our system. Therefore it is important that you up-date us if you change your address.

Careers Guidance

The National Careers Service have an Exam Results Helpline which can offer you advice if you didn’t the results you had hoped for. You can access this service here.

What else do you need to do now?

Relax, and try to enjoy your summer break. We’re looking forward to welcoming progressing learners back onto campus in September 2020 and we wish you all the very best of luck with your results and whatever you go on to do next year!
