Schools and colleges that are expecting results for A level Applied ICT on 15 August may find the following information useful.

On results day you can access the examiner reports for the above units on the GCE Applied ICT qualification pages.  Simply choose 'Examiner Reports' from the document list and refine your search to show 'June 2013'.

Coursework units

If you have submitted coursework in the summer 2013 series, your moderator will have written a report which provides you with general feedback on your marking and administration. This update on Downloading your Moderators Report will guide you through the process of downloading the report, step by step.

Grade boundaries

On results day, you can download the grade boundaries for all GCE Applied ICT units. Grade boundaries indicate the minimum marks needed to achieve a certain grade and can be downloaded from the A level grade boundaries page.

UMS guidance

UMS stands for Uniform Mark Scale. The UMS is used to convert candidates' component 'raw' marks into uniform marks. This is done in order to standardise marks from year to year. You can follow these links to find more guidance on UMS and the awarding process and download our UMS Calculator to help you convert your marks.
