Ajude-nos a manter o Covid fora da HATO.

A Level Results Day: Thursday 13th August 2020

GCSE Results Day: Thursday 20th August 2020

 

Please note: Due to social distancing, unfortunately Parents and Guardians will not be permitted into the building on either results day. The academy is following strict health and safety guidelines to reduce the risk of any transmission. Please rest assured, we have many staff available to support your child, on this very important day for them.

 

 

Results Day overview:

Well done for all your hard work. We wish you the best of luck!

 

As you receive your results, you may be wondering what happens next. We are here to help and support you. Below we have listed some useful links and information to help you make those important decisions.

Hopefully you'll get the exam grades you need, but if you happen to just miss out, the university or college you’ve applied for might still be able to accept you.

  • A levels: You might get a place on either your firm or insurance choice, depending how well your exams go.
  • A levels: You might be offered an alternative by the university/college – a 'changed course offer' (which you'll need to accept or decline).
  • You might not get a place, but you can search through the clearing service (A levels) or the borough websites (GCSEs) to see what courses still have vacancies.

If no decisions are showing, give your universities or colleges a call to find out more.

 

You’ve just received your results, what is your next step?

The following links will provide guidance on how your results were calculated, what to do if you’re unhappy with the outcome and where to find more support.

Clearing

Clearing is how Universities and colleges fill any places they still have on their courses.

If you find yourself in Clearing this year, you can apply for a course from 6 July – 20 October, if you’re not already holding an offer from a university or college, providing the course still has places.

Teacher Predictions, Centre Assessed Grades and Awarded Grades

The Department for Education and Ofqual has announced that the process for awarding GCSE results has been amended to take into account what has been called the ‘centre assessed grade’.

To be clear, a centre is another name for a school or academy. The centre assessed grade or CAG was provided for your child by the academy in May. The grade was provided to the examination boards on the understanding that this school grade would be compared to other schools nationally and standardised. Ofqual have now outlined that the grades all school submitted in May will not now be lowered through standardisation. In order to be fair to students, your child will get the higher grade out of the two scores – from either the centre assessed grade or standardised assessment grade (i.e. in the rare circumstance that the algorithm for results had awarded a higher grade than the centre, this grade would apply).

We wanted to clarify the process that schools were asked to follow in awarding those grades. These grades are based on a holistic review of classwork, examination performance and teacher assessment over the period of the GCSE Course. Those grades were moderated by teams; taking into account the broader picture of achievement across a cohort; they are not teacher predicted grades.

For BTEC courses, and vocational qualifications such as the NCFE Graphics course, the process is slightly different. Given the nature of assessment – being that pupils have banked marks throughout the course, grades are based on that prior performance.

 

Ofqual had produced a guide for families about the process. Some of the information within this brochure is now replaced by the new guidance; but the sections on autumn examination series, and the process for technical and vocation al qualifications are still relevant:

What if I am unhappy with my result?

Ofqual have announced that students are not able to make an individual appeal based on their examination grade this year given the process undertaken for centre assessed grades.

However, as an Academy we have the ability to log an appeal on your behalf, if we believe that the grade awarded meets the criteria. In these cases, a school can log an appeal if we believe:

  • There has been an administrative or clerical error (either by the Academy or by the examination board) which has led to your result
  • That the examination board has used inaccurate data in reaching your result.
  • The historical data used to reach our results is not an accurate representation of the current cohort.

We will work with you to have those conversations over the coming days to support you in the best way we can.  We will ask you to log any requests in writing.

You are entitled to:

  • To ask the school to conduct a clerical check to see if the centre made an error when submitting a Centre Assessed Grade.
  • To ask for information about the centre assessed grade and/or rank order that was reached when applying for your result. Please note, this would take the form of a letter which outlined your grade and rank order and any comments reaching those decisions; and would not include access to any information you have recorded yourself, such as mock examination papers, etc. The school is expected to provide this in writing within a month of receiving your request.  Please note, you cannot challenge the academy on the centre assessed grade or rank order that was submitted.  
  • To raise a complaint to us if you believe you have evidence of bias, or if you believe you were discriminated against when reaching a decision about your centre assessed grade.

In these cases, any such concerns would be raised under the Academy complaints procedure – a copy of which is available on the website. We would ask that in the first instance, you write a letter addressed to Ms. Safia Ibrahim, PA to the Executive Principal. This can be submitted via post or via email at s.ibrahim@harristottenham.org.uk.

Further information about post examination services is available within the OFQUAL guide:

Resit Examinations

There will be an opportunity for students who are not satisfied with GCSE grades to enter exams in the Autumn Term. These exams will start on Monday 2 November and finish on Monday 23 November. Entry to these exams will only be available to students in subjects for which they were entered in the Summer season and there is very strict deadline by which entries must be made. As a general principle we would advise students to think carefully before resitting exams as doing so will affect progression to further stages of education. The deadline for entries will be 4th October for English Language and mathematics and 18th September for all other subjects. Requests to resit will need to be received by the examinations office in advance of this: it is vital that you express your interest to us in writing by emailing exams@harristottenham.org.uk  as soon as possible, and no later than Wednesday 26th August. Upon receipt of your request we will contact you regarding the application process, and the associated fees that will be incurred.

Certificates

Certificates are usually available for collection in November. We will write to you in the Autumn term of 2020 to confirm arrangements with you; please ensure we have a current address and email address for you to send communications to.
