Guidance for results day

Ofqual have decided that students are awarded their Centre Assessment Grade for this summer - that is, the grade their school or college estimated was the grade they would most likely have achieved in their exam. If the standardised grade is higher than the Centre Assessment Grade, then this grade will stand so the student is awarded the higher grade.
