Summer 2020

Updated 27 August 2020:

Following the government’s decision to allow centre assessed grades to stand for GCSE, we can confirm that the results students received on 20 August incorporate this change.

A/AS Level and Level 3 results have been reissued by exam boards. The exam boards sent updated results directly to UCAS on 18-20 August. These updated results were made available for students to view on Edulink from 20 August onwards (student login only).

Cambridge National Enterprise & Marketing results have been now been issued and are available to view on Edulink (student login only).

Level 1 & 2 BTEC Sport, and Level 3 BTEC Performing Arts results have now been issued and are available to view on Edulink (student login only).

The appeals process as of 19 August is detailed below.

Edulink will only show results on the student login, they are not available on the parent login.

If you have any other questions with regards to your results, please contact the Exams Officer by email:  joanne.gallagher@pws.emat.uk

Autumn Exams

There will be a full series of GCE A, AS and GCSE in all subjects available in autumn 2020, however no BTEC exams will be available.  Exam timetables, entry forms and a list of entry fees are available to download from the bottom of this page.  Please note that the school will pay all invigilation and admin costs, however candidates are required to pay the exam board entry fee. Entry fees will be refunded to you after you have sat the exams.

Entry and payment deadlines are as follows:

  • A Level/AS Level & Level 3:  Wednesday 02 September 2020
  • GCSE English Language and Maths:  Wednesday 30 September 2020
  • GCSE – all other subjects:  Wednesday 16 September 2020

Late entries will be considered, however they cannot be guaranteed and extra charges may apply.  If an exam board has had no entries for a subject after the deadline then exams in that subject will be withdrawn from the Autumn 2020 exam series.

GCSE English Language and GCSE Maths:

As in previous years, if you have achieved a grade 3 or under in GCSE English Language/Maths and will be a student at PWS Sixth Form then you will not have to pay any entry fees to sit these exams in Autumn 2020.  Entries for these exams will be dealt with by PWS Staff if they feel it is appropriate.

If you achieved a grade 4 or higher and will be a student at PWS Sixth Form and you wish to improve your grade, then you will need to pay the exam board entry fee and submit an entry form.

If you achieved a grade 3 or under and will not be a student at PWS, your new college/sixth form will be receiving funding for you to resit these exams with them so please check directly with them.  Please note not all colleges/sixth forms run a November exam series for GCSE English Language/Maths and you may need to wait until Summer 2021 to sit your exams with them.

The results dates for the Autumn 2020 exams are:

  • A Level/AS Level & Level 3:  Thursday 17 December 2020
  • GCSE English Language & GCSE Maths:  Thursday 14 January 2021
  • All other GCSE & Level 1/2 Subjects:  Thursday 11 February 2021

Certificates

Certificates will be issued to candidates once received from the exam boards.  The arrangements for this will be communicated to students once this has been finalised.
