Edexcel A level Music and Music Technology: August 2018 update
Read the latest information on Edexcel A level Music and Music Technology, including key dates and preparing for results day.
Summer 2018 results
Results day for AS and A level is Thursday 16 August. You will be able to find out the results for your cohorts and see the grade boundaries, examiner reports and begin any post-results process, including our free Access to Scripts service.
ResultsPlus is a free online results analysis tool for teachers that gives you a detailed breakdown of your students’ performance in Edexcel exams. It provides the most detailed analysis available of your students’ performance and helps you to identify topics and skills where your students could benefit from further learning, helping them gain a deeper understanding of their subject.
Principal Examiner Report
The Principal Examiner also compiles a report on how candidates performed in this year’s examinations. It provides general feedback and highlights good approaches that can be taken forward to future examination series.
You can find these reports on ResultsPlus. Please speak to your examinations officer if you don't have access to ResultsPlus.
Watch our short video on how to find the Principal Examiner Report.
Reviews of marking and moderation (RoMM)
If you're a centre with a concern about a student's results, you can use our post-results services. We have details about these services and their cost online.
Access to scripts
After the summer 2018 results are published in August, centres will be able to view and download scripts which have been marked online free of charge from our Self-Service Portal via Edexcel Online.
The Self-Service Portal will be available until the final post-results deadline for each exam series:
- Thursday 16 August - Friday 14 December 2018
Customers should save and/or print any scripts they need for teaching and learning purposes before the post-results deadline.
Scripts do not have examiner annotation on them. The marked script allows teachers to evaluate how the student performed on particular questions in relation to what they have been taught; the Principal Examiner's Report and the exemplars that we make available demonstrate how the mark scheme is applied.
If scripts have been marked "traditionally" (i.e. not online), centres will have to request them via the Post Results section of Edexcel Online as in previous exam series.
These scripts will also be free of charge, but the final dates to request them are the same as the published JCQ Access to Scripts deadlines.
