Most grades this summer have been based on Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs).
TAGs were submitted to the awarding organisations as a holistic assessment of students' performance in a subject, following a rigorous process of assessment, moderation and quality assurance.
TAGs will have been approved by awarding organisations following extensive external quality assurance checks, this year no grades will be changed as a result of an algorithm.
Results days for summer 2021 are as follows:
|10/08/2021||GCE (A Levels), L3 Extended Project, L3 Cambridge Technicals, L3 BTEC Nationals, LIBF Finance, WJEC Applied Cert/Dip|
|12/08/2021||GCSE, iGCSE, L2 Cambridge Technicals, L2 BTEC Firsts, L2 Higher Project|
Results will be available to view on Student FIS from 08:30am.
We would encourage all students to access their results online where possible and only come on site if they cannot access results electronically or need to speak to a member of staff.
If students do need to come into College, results will be available on site from 9am.
Results will be available either from the covered courtyard or the college foyer (weather dependant). Signs will be visible to direct students as required.
Certificates will be received from the awarding organisations towards the end of the year and will be available to collect from Reception as of 1 December 2021.
Certificates that are not collected will be posted out to a student's last known address. Students' must make sure Franklin College have their correct address if they are relying on certificates being posted.
Replacement certificates must be applied for by a student directly with the awarding organisation. Fees vary however are on average £50 per certificate.
Whilst we hope all of our students are happy with their results, we understand that there may be some students who are disappointed or have concerns about their grade.
If you are unhappy with your grade, or are concerned that the grade you received is wrong, there is an appeals process available.
There are two stages to the appeals process
It is important to note that following an appeal, a grade may be lowered, confirmed or increased. If a grade is lowered, it will not be possible to revert back to the original grade recieved on results day.
More information about appeals can be found on our 20/21 Appeals Information and FAQs page.
There will also be an option to resit A Level and GCSEs in the Autumn, which may be preferable to some students. The assessment format of these exams will be the same as in a normal year.
