General Information on Results Days/Certificates

If you have any questions that are not answered below, please contact
the Examinations Office at Shenley Brook End School.

Please see the results dates section for the current academic year.

  • Results for the November and January series of examinations will be issued during form time.
  • Results for the Summer series of examinations may be collected from the school by candidates.
  • If a candidate is not able to collect results in person (in the Summer series), the results may either be collected by a third party or the candidate may ask for his/her results to be scanned and emailed through on results day.  In either case, the candidate should collect the appropriate form from the Exams Office, complete it and return it to the Exams Office and ideally this will be done before the start of the summer break.  Results will not be handed to anyone other than the candidate, even parents, without authorisation from the candidate.  Candidates should be aware that results documents being emailed to them may not be sent until around 12.30pm on results day.
  • Summer results envelopes not collected by Year 11, 12 or 13 candidates on the day of issue will be posted home at the end of the relevant results day.  Results envelopes not collected by candidates from other year groups will be available during form time on return to school in September.
  • GCE results
    The AS qualification will be graded on a five-point scale: A, B, C, D and E.
    The A Level qualification will be graded on a six-point scale: A*, A, B, C, D and E.
    Students who fail to reach the minimum standard for grade E will be recorded as U (unclassified) and will not receive a qualification certificate.
  • GCSE results will be graded on a nine-point scale: 1-9 – where 9 is the best grade.  Students who fail to reach the minimum standard for grade 1 will be recorded as U (unclassified) and will not receive a qualification certificate.
  • BTEC results are graded: D* (Distinction*)  D (Distinction)  M (Merit)  P (Pass) or a combination of these results depending on the type of qualification.
  • Certificates (for qualifications achieved throughout the preceding academic year) will be in school and ready for collection by early December.  Candidates who are still at SBE will be notified when certificates are ready for collection; candidates who have left SBE will receive a letter advising them that certificates are ready for collection.  If a candidate is not able to collect his/her own certificate/s, their written authorisation will be required to allow the school to pass the certificate/s on to someone else.

Post Results Services

Enquiries about Results (EAR) / Access to Scripts (ATS)

If you have any questions that are not answered below, please contact
the Examinations Office at Shenley Brook End School.

As well as results information, a candidate’s results envelope will contain a Post Results Services information sheet about making an Enquiries about Results (EAR) or Access to Script (ATS) request; there are charges attached to any such request and these costs are payable by the candidate and must be paid prior to any request being submitted to the relevant awarding body.  Candidates are advised to see Mrs Bayliss in the Examinations Office promptly after they have received their results if they wish to request either service.  A candidate may not request an EAR for a controlled assessment or non-examination assessment unit.

 

REVIEW OF RESULTS (RoR)

If, when a candidate receives his/her results for a written examination or module, he/she believes that there has been a mistake (in terms of the mark awarded) then a Review of Results (RoR) request may be made.  The awarding body will carry out the service requested (for an administration charge) and if an error is found, mark/s may be changed and this may affect the final grade for the subject; marks can go down as well as up as part of the review process.  The charges for RoR services vary depending on the examination board and level; an information sheet will be included in every candidate’s results envelope.  Any fee/s due must be paid before the service is requested by the centre.  If a grade change occurs as a result of the RoR, the fee is refunded.  If a candidate wishes to consider requesting an appeal against the outcome of a review, candidates/parent should be aware that the school will need to support an appeal before this can be undertaken.  A photocopy of the script will need to have been requested (prior to the initial review) before an appeal can be considered otherwise the school will not have any basis for the appeal.

The RoR services available are:

  • Service 1 – clerical re-check.  This is a re-check of all clerical procedures leading to the issue of a result. 
  • Service 2 – post-results review of marking.  This is a post-results review of the original marking to ensure that the agreed mark scheme has been applied correctly.  The service is available for externally assessed components of both unitised and linear specifications.
  • Priority Service 2 – post-results review of marking (Summer series only).  This service is as Service 2 but is only available if:
  • the enquiry is about an examination of a Level 3 qualification
  • a candidate’s place in higher education is dependent upon the outcome 

This service must be requested within a week of the GCE results day so it is important that candidate/s wishing to make a Priority Service 2 request speak to Mrs Bayliss in the Examinations Office as a matter of some urgency.

 

ACCESS TO SCRIPTS (ATS)

Candidates may request their script either to assist in making a decision as whether a review of results may be required or to support their learning; there is a fee attached to an ATS service and this must be paid before the service is requested by the centre.  The ATS services available are:

  • ATS Photocopy – candidates may request a photocopy of their script to assist in making a decision about whether a review of marking may be required.  This service is offered by all awarding bodies at GCE; at GCSE, in 2019/20 ATS for AQA was limited to English Language and mathematics but Pearson Edexcel, OCR and WJEC offer wider access to photocopy scripts.  The service must be requested within a week of the relevant results day so it is important that candidates speak to Mrs Bayliss in the Examinations Office as a matter of some urgency if they wish to make an Access to Scripts Photocopy request.
  • ATS Original – GCE and GCSE candidates may request the original of their script to support them in their learning.  Please note, however, that once an original script has been requested and received, a candidate may not request an EAR.
