A Level Results Day 2020
A Level results will be issued to students nationwide on Thursday 13th August 2020, and despite the unusual circumstances in which these results have been generated, we still want our students to have the opportunity to collect their results from the college in person, should they wish to do so. This will enable us to congratulate students, as well as provide additional support for any that may need it.
Given the current situation with Covid 19, and the ongoing importance of social distancing, we have put the following measures in place to ensure that everyone is able to collect their results safely.
- All A Level results will be issued between 8:00am-10:00am on Thursday 13th July.
- All students will have a designated time slot and collection point, which will be sent out via letter.
- No family members or additional visitors will be permitted on site, unless they are collecting results on behalf of a student. If this is the case, they will need to bring a signed note authorising them to collect the results, as well as ID that will enable us to verify their identity.
- Students should enter via the Avro Hall door, next to the Tollbar Academy main reception, and proceed to the Drama Hall, where the Sixth Form Leadership Team will issue results. Students will then leave the site via the Sixth Form entrance.
- Rooms in Atlas building will be available for students who may need additional support with using the UCAS Clearing or Adjustment services.
- If, on results day, you have any urgent queries that you need to discuss prior to your timed slot, you should contact the College on 01472 500505.
If you are unable to attend during your designated slot to collect your results, they will be taken to Tollbar Academy main school reception, from where you can collect them at your convenience. Alternatively, if you provide the college with a Stamped Addressed Envelope prior to results day, your results can be sent to you in the post.
It would also be appreciated if you could return on results day, any resources or property that you may have that belong to the college, which, given the rapid nature of the lockdown in March, you may still have in your possession.
The GCE appeals process will also differ this year with no written exams having been sat. If you have concerns following the issuing of results, please contact the Tollbar Academy exam office by phone as soon as possible. The government have published their guidance on the appeals process for 2020, however, exam boards have not as yet published their appeals policies. The government guidance suggests that this year students will be able to:
- Ask an exam centre to check whether it made an error when submitting a grade.
- Raise a complaint with the exam centre if they have evidence of bias or that they have been discriminated against.
- Ask for a review of the decision if the exam centre decides not to place an appeal to an exam board.
The deadline for any appeals has not yet been confirmed, and we will advise you of this as soon as it is available.
Following the publication of results in August, if you consider that you would have performed better given the opportunity to sit your exams, there will be an opportunity for you to do so in the Autumn term. Provisional dates for A Level resits indicate that they will take place between Monday 5 October – Friday 23 October. Any students wishing to be entered for resits will need to inform the college by Thursday 20 August 2020.
We very much hope you are able to join us on results day, and look forward to seeing you again before you embark upon the exciting future that lies ahead of you.
