Please find below a summary of information provided by Ofqual.

How have this year’s grades been calculated?

This year’s grades have been calculated through a combination of:

  • centre assessment grades
  • the rank order of students based on their expected performance provided by schools and colleges
  • a model of national standardisation developed by Ofqual and the exam boards to make sure that all grades are fair and valid.

You can find out more about this process by watching Ofqual’s explainer video, or visiting their website: www.gov.uk/government/organisations/ofqual.

What are my options if I am unhappy with my grades?

Students who would like to use a valid mock result will also be able to do so through the appeals process. You will need to notify the school, by completing the survey below and we will provide evidence of your mock results to the exam board.

Schools and colleges can also appeal if they believe something has gone wrong in processing their results or if they believe their historic data does not reflect the ability of their current students.

For students wishing to try and improve their grades, you can take exams in the autumn term at Weatherhead.

The school will continue support you with securing a place at university, further training and employment throughout the summer.

Please complete the survey if you require any further support from the school.
