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 (12 August): We understand that schools, parents and students will want to know more about the Secretary of State's announcement regarding the use of mock grades. We're working with Ofqual and the Department for Education, and will make further details available as soon as we have more to share. Ofqual intend to publish further information on this early next week. If centres wish to appeal on the basis of mock examination evidence, you should wait until you've seen this further guidance before submitting your appeal. Other types of appeal, using existing appeal grounds, can be submitted from 13 August.

This video will help students, parents and carers understand how grades will be calculated in summer 2020.

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.
