Thousands of teenagers across Leicestershire are being wished the best of luck ahead of A-level and GCSE results days.
Around 3,000 county pupils are set to find out their A-Level and AS-Level grades on Tuesday (10th) and around 7,000 will find out what their GCSE grades are on Thursday (12th).
Results have been based on teacher assessments this year due to the pandemic. Pupils are also finding out their grades earlier than usual, to give them time to appeal if needs be.
We would like to wish all our young people finding out their grades the very best of luck.
“These have been unprecedented times. Our young people have been absolutely remarkable, flexible and resilient, taking new ways of working such as home learning and virtual lessons in their stride.
“I know a lot of hard work has gone into preparing for this moment and achieving these qualifications.”Person:Councillor Deborah Taylor, Leicestershire County Council cabinet member for children and families
Pupils looking for guidance or support after receiving their results should seek help from their school or college in the first instance, where staff will be available to advise on the options available.
Anyone who wishes to appeal or query a grade award should contact their local school or college in the first instance.
If you still feel your grade has been awarded in error after they have carried out a review, they must submit an appeal to the exam board, if you ask them to do so.
More information on appeals is available here.
