Results for students and parents 2020
We know that the closure of schools and colleges and the cancellation of the summer exam series has been very unsettling for both students and parents and you may feel anxious about what this means for your results.
Update (18 August): Following yesterday’s Ofqual announcement, JCQ have just confirmed that all schools and colleges will receive their GCSE results according to the published time of 00:01 on Wednesday 19 August, allowing students to receive their final grades on Thursday 20 August.
International GCSE results will also publish at the same time as GCSE, allowing students to receive their grades on Thursday 20 August. AS and A level results will be available to centres during Wednesday 19 August, allowing centres to confirm these results immediately to students.
For International AS/A level, results are now available via A2C and Edexcel Online, and centres can let their students know immediately. Pre-populated and downloadable Candidate Statement of Provisional Results (CSPR) and Broadsheets Results Reports will be available to centres by 20 August 2020.
Results for all suites listed above will be available to access via A2C and Edexcel Online.
Update (15 August): The Secretary of State has announced that the government will cover the fees for appeals. We are working with the Department for Education and Ofqual, and will update the website as we know more.
Our main priority now is to ensure that all students are awarded the grades that they have worked so hard for, so you can continue to the next stage, whether that be further education, university, apprenticeships or work. We're providing you with information and support up to results day and beyond so that you can be sure you have all the information you need to take your next steps.
Take a look at the information and guidance we've put together to support you on results day and beyond, including frequently asked questions.
