Will I be told what I need to do in order to improve my GCSE grade?
English is not my native language, can I attend a language class as well?

Studied GCSEs here at College? Here's all you need to know:

Your GCSE Results will be available from 8am on the 20th August 2020 via the Exams tab on your eILP.

A printed results slip will also be posted to you on results day but is not likely to arrive for 2 to 3 days.

To access your results please log into your eILP using your Username (WS number) and password (like you use to log onto PCs in college). Click here for more information on how to access your results.

If you have any issues accessing your grade via eILP, please feel free to contact us at examinations@weston.ac.uk.

As you are aware this year Awarding Bodies asked the college to do the following on your behalf:

  • Submit a Centre Assessed Grades based on evidence of your performance
  • Position you in rank order with other students having the same Centre Assessed Grade submitted

This detailed process was undertaken by your tutors and their managers to ensure accuracy and fair play. The college Quality Team then looked at the overall college submission before it was finally signed off by our Head of Centre. If on results day you are not happy with your result/s then you may have grounds for appeal (which the college must submit on your behalf), the Awarding Body Deadline is the 17th September 2020.

You can only appeal if you think that there has been an error in the process not because you do not agree with the grade awarded The grounds on which you could appeal are:

  1. You think there might have been a mistake when college submitted your Centre Assessed Grade
  2. You think the Exam Board might have made a mistake when calculating your grade
  3. You think your result has been affected by wrongdoing such as bias or discrimination

You cannot appeal because:

  1. You don’t agree with the Centre Assessed Grade given by the college
  2. You don’t agree with the statistical standardisation model used by the Exam Board

If you believe that you would have gained a better grade had, you sat the exam or would like to improve your grade then there is an Autumn Exam series (2 – 23 Nov 2020) opportunity. The Awarding Body deadline for entry is 4 October 2020.

Please speak to College Exams and Assessment Services 01934 411411 ext. 1377 or email examinations@weston.ac.uk who will help you determine if you have a basis for appeal. You must remember that grades can go up, down or stay the same.

Should you wish to appeal the decision reached by Exams you can ask to be referred to the Quality Team.
