Examination Results Day Arrangements 2020
Arrangements for Collection of Examination Results Summer 2020
Please be advised that due to the current national situation regarding Covid-19, the arrangements for the issuing and collection of A Level and GCSE examination results will be different from previous years.
In line with normal procedures, results will be released for each cohort on two specific days:
- A Level results are published on Thursday 13th August 2020 from 8am
- GCSE and equivalent results are published on Thursday 20th August 2020 from 8am
Arrangements for Year 13 Students – Thursday 13 August
As explained at the end of last term, all A level, BTEC, AS level and EPQ results will be emailed to your son/daughter's school email address at 8am on Thursday 13th August. We have tested this system, and are confident that it will work, but if your son/daughter does not receive an email, they should email Ms Hallinan on email@example.com and she will re-send the results.
Given the disruption to their final year of schooling, we have also made the decision to allow our Year 13 students to come into school on Thursday to collect a formal printout of their results and a copy of their yearbook.
School will be open from 8.30am on the 13 August. HOWEVER, your son/daughter should only come in at 8.30am if they can see from UCAS track that they have not been accepted by their firm or insurance university choice, have been placed in clearing and need urgent support from the sixth form team.
All other students should arrive at school between 9.30 and 11.30am - school will close to students at midday.
If any student who is currently quarantining needs support with the clearing process, they should ring the school on 0207 346 6617 and email the sixth form team on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will ensure that they get the help that they need. We will also put in place arrangements so that quarantining students can pick up their yearbook and formal print out of results another time, so students need not worry about that.
Arrangements for Year 12 (AS Level) Students – Thursday 13 August
In order to ensure social distancing, we are asking Year 12 students who were entered into an AS level NOT to attend school to pick up their AS results.
Your results will be emailed to your school email address by 3pm on Thursday 13 August.
If you have any questions or concerns about your AS level result, then please email Ms Fletcher on email@example.com and she will get back to you next week.
Arrangements for Year 11 Students - Thursday 20 August
GCSE, BTEC and VCert results will be emailed to your son/daughter's school email address at 8am on Thursday 20 August. Once again, if your son/daughter does not receive an email, they should email Fiona Hallinan on firstname.lastname@example.org and she will re-send the results.
For existing TCSND students who have been offered places in The Charter School North Dulwich 6th Form for September they will have been sent an individual appointment time to meet staff in school to discuss their progression.
External applicants have been sent a specific timeslot to attend the school on Thursday 20 August with proof of their GCSE results.
If any students have not received this information, they must email the sixth form administrator on email@example.com as soon as possible.
Health & Safety on results days
As you know, we are still in the midst of a global pandemic, and we must continue to do everything we can to help limit the spread of the virus. This means that, unfortunately, results day will not look the same as in previous years.
On the 13 and 20 August, students:
- must not arrive at or leave school in large groups
- must follow the one-way system and signs around the building that will explain where they need to go
- must maintain social distancing of 1m+ from staff and other students whilst in school – unfortunately, this does mean that the usual results day celebratory hugging will not be allowed
- will not be able to stay at school for very long and will need to leave when asked to by staff
- should behave responsibly when celebrating their results after leaving school – for example, they should not meet in large groups in Sunray Gardens
PLEASE NOTE: If your son/daughter has returned within the past 14 days from any country that is not on England’s travel corridor list, they MUST remain at home. Equally, if they are displaying any symptoms of Coronavirus, they must also stay at home.
Further Information to Support Students Receiving Examination Results in Summer 2020
We are aware that students may be understandably worried about the process by which their examination grades were confirmed this year in light of the exceptional circumstances caused by the COVID-19 emergency. To assist students and their parents better understand this process, as well as what happens after examination results are received, there are a number of useful resources that have been created by the Department for Education and Ofqual, which can be accessed via the links below.
Please note that some of this guidance is currently under urgent review and may change over the next few weeks.
