Examination Information

Welcome to the Examination area

Within the Exam's Office area of this website we aim to provide students and parents with the tools and information which we hope will be both useful and informative. Application forms for exam re-sits, Access to Scripts (ATS) as well as Reviews of Results (RoRs) will be available and updated as each exam season changes. This page will also provide exam timetable dates for the next set of exams to be sat by our students as well as a list of key dates.

Summer 2021 Teacher Assessed Grades (TAG) Centre policy can be found below.

2021 - review of assessment procedures are outlined by JCQ: https://www.jcq.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/JCQ_Appeals-Guidance_Summer-2021.pdf

The JCQ appeals application form is available at the bottom of this page and at: https://www.jcq.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/JCQ_Appeals-Guidance_Summer-2021_Appendix-B.pdf

Teacher Assessed Grades (TAG)

The school determined TAG in accordance with the JCQ guidance and the centre policy [see below] and submitted these grades to the relevant awarding organisations by the required deadline.

Results

Results will be issued from 08:30 am, in the Old School, on results days in August as follows:

Date Qualification type
10/08/2021 GCE (AS, A Levels) and other Level 3 qualifications
12/08/2021 GCSE and other Level 1/2 qualifications

Concerns about your results

When you receive your results, if you think that a grade is wrong, your first step should be to speak to a member of the Senior Team for advice.

Further details of the arrangements for appeals are provided below.

Certificates

You will receive your certificates from the awarding organisations in November.  These will be issued to you either through Speech Night to which you will receive an invitation.

The Arrangements for Appeals

Section 5.4 of  JCQ Appeals Guidance Summer 2021 A guide to appeals processes–Summer 2021 states:

To decide whether to request a review, students will need access to certain information before results day, or on results day, if it has not already been made available to them. This must include:

  1. the centre policy
  2.  the sources of evidence used to determine the student’s grade, along with the marks/grades associated with them
  3.  details of any variations in evidence used based on disruption to what that student was taught
  4.  details of any special circumstances that have been considered in determining their grade, e.g. access arrangements/reasonable adjustments or mitigating circumstances such as illness

There are two stages to the appeals process:

  • Stage 1 - centre review
  • Stage 2 - appeal to the awarding organisation

The King's School will support its students through the centre review and awarding organisation appeals process.

Stage 1 – Centre Review

  • If a student does not consider they have been issued with the correct grade, they can submit a request to Miss Nauyokas at charlotte.nauyokas@kings.lincs.sch.uk, the Exams Officer to check if an administrative or procedural error has occurred.
  • Miss Nauyokas will email the student a copy of the JCQ Student Request Form for Centre Reviews and Appeals as an attachment.
  • The outcome of the centre review may result in the student’s grade remaining the same, being lowered or raised.
  • On completion of the review school will complete section B of the form, Centre review outcome and share with the student as a record of the outcome. This will be carried out in sufficient time prior to the relevant appeal deadline to awarding organisation.
  • If an administrative or procedural error is found, The King's School will submit a request to the awarding organisation to correct the error and amend the grade without the need to submit an appeal to the awarding organisation

Stage 2 – Appeal to the awarding organisation

  • An appeal to the awarding organisation will only be submitted if the first stage, centre review, has been completed and the outcome of the first stage has been issued to the student.
  • The awarding organisation will not be able to consider an appeal that is based solely on differences of opinion - if the student wants to improve their grade they may want to consider entering for the autumn exam series.
  • If the student believes there is still an error following the centre review, or if the awarding organisation has made an administrative error, or the student considers that the grade awarded was an unreasonable exercise of academic judgement, the student can submit a request to Miss Nauyokas at charlotte.nauyokas@kings.lincs.sch.uk to proceed with an appeal to the awarding organisation on their behalf.
  • The awarding organisation will determine the grade at appeal and the outcome will be final.
  • The outcome of the appeal may result in the  grade remaining the same, being lowered or raised.
  • There is no further opportunity to appeal the outcome to the awarding organisation.
  • The awarding organisation’s appeal outcome letter will be provided by email to the student by Miss Nauyokas. This will be done  as soon as reasonably practical after the outcome letter from the awarding organisation is received within the centre.
  • Should the student still remain concerned their grade was incorrect, they may be able to apply for a procedural review.
  • The appeal outcome letter will include the next appropriate steps, where applicable, to apply for a procedural review to the Exam Procedures Review Service (EPRS)

Note - Once a finding has been made you cannot withdraw your request for a centre review or appeal. If your grade has been lowered, you will not be able to revert back to the original grade you received on results day.

Deadlines to Submit a Request

Priority appeal
  • 16 August 2021 – deadline for a student to request a Stage 1 - centre review
  • 23 August 2021 – deadline for a student to request a Stage 2 – appeal to awarding organisation
Non-priority appeal
  • 3 September 2021 - deadline for a student to request a Stage 1 - centre review
  • 17 September 2021– deadline for a student to request a Stage 2 – appeal to awarding organisation

Any requests received after midday on the deadline days are unlikely to be accepted for a centre review or appeal.

All centre reviews and appeals must be made directly to Miss Nauyokas at charlotte.nauyokas@kings.lincs.sch.uk

Requests sent to other members of staff or the office may not be received and could delay the process, resulting in a missed deadline.

A priority appeal is only for students applying to higher education who did not attain their firm choice (i.e. the offer they accepted as their first choice) and wish to appeal an A level or other Level 3 qualification result. You should inform your intended higher education provider that you have requested a centre review or appeal. You will need to provide in the request form(s) your UCAS personal ID code which is included in all correspondence from UCAS. This is needed to confirm that a student’s place is dependent on the outcome of the appeal. Priority appeals that aren’t submitted to the awarding organisation by 23 August 2021 will still be treated as a priority but they may not be completed in time for those with a higher education place dependent on the outcome of the appeal
