Results Days 2022


We are aware of some industrial action with some staff who work for exam boards.  However we have been assured by the boards that this will not have an impact on getting all results out on schedule for results days.


We are pleased to be able to welcome students into school on results days to collect their examination results in person.

Please find details below of the arrangements:

Thursday 18th August 2022

Results will be available for students who have completed:

  • A level
  • Level 3 BTEC
  • Level 3 CTEC
  • EPQ

Results will be available also for Year 12 students for

  • Level 3 BTEC and CTEC external units:

Results will be distributed in the LRC in Fells.

  • Year 13 students are welcome in school from 8.00 a.m.
  • Year 12 students, who have completed their EPQ or Level 3 BTEC/CTEC external units can collect results after 9.00 a.m.

Students will also receive a results email to their school email account on the morning of the 18th August.

N.B. BTEC/CTEC unit grades will not be emailed and can be collected on results day or in September.

If you are unable to attend in person, please DO NOT send someone in for you.  We are only able to issue results to individual students, and you will receive your results by email.

Help and advice will be on hand in the LRC from members of the Sixth-Form team to assist you with your progression to higher or further education, training or apprenticeships.

If you are unable to attend in person, please DO NOT send someone in for you.  We are only able to issue results to individual students, and you will receive your results by email.

Help and advice will be on hand in the LRC from members of the Sixth-Form team to assist you with your progression to sixth form, college, further education, training or apprenticeships.  We will also have representatives from selected local colleges to give you advice on their courses.

Don’t forget to complete the Google Form you will be emailed to let us know whether you are returning to South Craven, accepting your course offer or requesting a change of course or going to college or another provider.

‘Post-results’ services

If you believe there has been an error in producing one or more of your exam results, you should use our ‘post-results’ service.  We work with the awarding bodies to allow:

  • Access to your marked scripts, to help you decide if you think an error has been made
  • Clerical check, to ensure all your marks have been added correctly
  • Review of marking, where a senior examiner will judge whether the original marker awarded marks appropriately and in line with the mark scheme
  • Appeals, if you believe any of the post-results review processes were not carried out properly by the board.
  • Resits.  It is possible to resit GCSE Maths and/or English in November if you do not get a grade 4 or higher.  You should ask to be entered for any resit in the institution you are studying in in September.  If you go to college, you should be entered by the college and not South Craven.

Most post-results services have a fee.  Details can be found in your results pack.

If you wish to access any post-results services or have any questions about them, please speak to the exams team on results day or email exams@southcraven.org.

Ofqual, the government department responsible for all qualifications have a useful blog post on how GCSE and A Level grades will be awarded in summer 2022.

Certificates

You will get a ‘Statement of Results’ on the results day, which can use as proof of results to get on courses at other institutions. 

Official certificates are produced later in the year, provisionally available to collect from Monday 5th December, when all results and any appeals are finalised.

Lost Exam Certificates

We do not have duplicates exam certificates for students who have left over one year ago. The only organisations that can replace them are the exam boards that awarded them. Most exam boards will charge you for their replacement.

Plagiarism Monitoring

We have recently started using PlagScan to monitor coursework submissions for plagiarism – this is great preparation for students going onto University where monitoring takes place as a matter of course.
