Collecting exam results

The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) has changed the time at which results can be released to students from 6am to 8am. This change applies to the following qualifications from Thursday 13 August 2020 and Thursday 20 August 2020.

  • ELC
  • FSMQ
  • GCSE
  • GCE AS
  • GCE A-level
  • Project and Extended Project qualifications

This decision was made by the JCQ, UCAS and the Department for Education in the best interest of students. It is to make sure that students can access advice and support from schools and colleges at the time they get their results, to better support their mental health and wellbeing.  It also aligns with the opening of UCAS systems, and they have agreed that they will not confirm any university places to students until 8.00am.
