Everything You Need to Know
Updated Thursday 27 August 2020
Results Days were a little different this year and we understand that this was quite a difficult time for everyone as awarding bodies changed their systems and guidance throughout the results period. Here are some of the key points about results to help you.
Receiving your results
We receive results in different ways and at different times for different awarding bodies. Here’s a summary (See appendix below) of how we communicated results for different qualifications. We’re still waiting for some results so please read on if you are in this group.
Haven’t received your results yet?
Some learners still have to complete assessments. If this applies to you, your teacher will be in contact with you shortly (if not already) to discuss this.
If you studied a BTEC Level 1/2 Tech Award or Technical, a BTEC Level 1/2 First or a BTEC Level 3 National, we’re still waiting for BTEC to re-issue these results, since they decided to apply Ofqual’s principles to grading. We expect to receive these on Friday 28 August and we’ll email these to you as soon as we receive them.
If you still have questions about receiving your results, please email ExamsOfficers@coleggwent.ac.uk or call your campus exams department, who’ll be happy to help:
Please note – due to Covid-19, we have a reduced number of staff available to take calls but all of the team are picking up emails and will respond to your query as quickly as possible.
AS/A Level Results, Advanced Skills Challenge Certificates and GCSE
Following the Minister’s announcement and the re-issuing of AS, A Level, SCC and GCSE grades, you should now have received your final results. Some of you have contacted us to ask if you can appeal.
There are specific grounds on which you can appeal:
- College error: there was an administrative error in the Centre Assessment Grades or Rank Ordering submitted to WJEC.
- You believe an administrative error was made in submitting the centre assessment data to WJEC.
- You believe that a result issued by WJEC was incorrectly allocated and / or communicated to you.
- That there was some other procedural failing on the part of WJEC.
An appeal cannot be made on the following grounds:
- You disagree with the professional judgements made by your tutor/lecturer in determining your centre assessment grade and/or position in the rank order.
- You want to question the moderation/standardisation model (s) used.
If you meet any of the above grounds for appeal and have evidence to support this, please download and complete the Appeals Form and e-mail to the relevant member of staff:
Jessica.Pike@coleggwent.ac.uk for AS/A Level Appeals
Mark.firstname.lastname@example.org for GCSE Appeals
Victoria.Davies@coleggwent.ac.uk for WBQ/SCC Appeals
Appeal forms must be submitted by Thursday 10th September 2020.
We’ll inform you within 5 working days of whether or not you have grounds for appeal.
If we feel you don’t have grounds for us to appeal on your behalf, we’ll let you know via email. If you’re still dissatisfied, you can raise a complaint via our Contact Us page in line without Complaints Policy as long as you have evidence that the appeals process has not been followed. You cannot use the Complaints Policy to challenge your grade, only the process followed.
If we agree that you do have grounds to appeal, we’ll submit a request to WJEC on your behalf which will then go through an Initial Review by WJEC. This can take up to 42 calendar days to complete from WJEC receiving the application. If you’re waiting to confirm a university place, we’ll submit the appeals application as soon as possible, hence the deadline of 10th September to submit your appeal to the college.
