A Level, Vocational & GCSE Results 2020

It’s been an exceptional year for all our current and future students. Everyone at the College is proud of each and every one of you for your dedication and motivation in focusing on your studies. We appreciate how hard you’ve worked to do your best.

Results days for A Levels, BTEC & UAL (13 August) and GCSE (20 August) will feel different this year and we understand that you may understandably be more anxious about what the outcomes mean.

We have created the Results 2020 hub to help our current A Level and Vocational students and GCSE pupils find the best information, advice and guidance, whatever your results.

We wish you all the very best of luck!

Please note that this information has been updated to reflect the changes to the grading system announced by Ofqual on Monday 17 August. Please follow the appropriate links below for more specific information relating to your qualification.​

NEW GUIDANCE - Tuesday 18 August 2020

Post-16 Qualification Results Guide - Updated 19 August

A Levels
- If you were rejected from your first choice university and have yet to find out what your Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) are, please contact the exams office by emailing exams@callywith.ac.uk and ask for your CAGs.

If your CAGs are higher that the grades you were awarded by the exam boards on Thursday 13th August, you will now be awarded your CAGs instead.

We recommend that you forward the email confirmation from the exams office to your university admissions office. They may or may not accept this as evidence.

Unfortunately we have no control over university admissions who all make their own decisions.

If the university requests confirmation from the exam board, they will receive this from the exam board via UCAS once the exam board have done this.

We also await updated results from the exam boards which we hope to receive shortly.

We have removed your 13th August results from the exams results link previously used.

The updated A Level results will be sent to you by post 1st class on Wednesday 19 August and can now be viewed online above.

Vocational qualifications (BTEC & UAL) - Following a recent announcement late this afternoon (Wednesday 19 August) from Pearson, BTEC Level 1 and Level 2 results will not be released on Thursday 20 August.

Pearson have reviewed the impact on BTEC students following Ofquals recent announcement that A Level and GCSE students are to receive Centre Assessment Grades and have now decided to regrade all BTEC Level 3 National Foundation and Extended Diplomas and BTEC Level 1 and Level 2 First Certificates.

They have reassured students that no grades will go down as part of this review and will issue grades as soon as they can.

Level 2 BTEC students hoping to return to college for a Level 3 course will still be called by a PTL on Thursday 20 August to discuss their progression as described in the letter we sent you at the beginning of August.

There is currently no change to UAL Level 2 and 3 Diplomas results.

We will share more information as soon as it becomes available.

GCSE Results Advice

While GCSE results day (20 August) might look a little different this year, it’s still a time where excitement and stress can walk hand-in-hand.

Luckily, Callywith College is here to help you through it and to make sure your results work for you. 

If you have already applied to the College, when you receive your results it’s important to give us a call at your allotted time slot on the day after results day (21 August) to confirm your place with us.

You should have received a letter during the summer with your Course Confirmation phone slot. It is essential that you phone during this slot to make sure everyone is able to get through to the College.

This phone call is also your opportunity to change your course/ subject if you have changed your mind. A minor subject change can usually be made during this call but a more complex change may mean that a senior member of staff will give you a call back later in the day.

If there is a need for you to come into the College for an advice session, a member of our admission team will organise a meeting for you between the 24th-25th of August. This meeting will be socially distanced and we ask you to only bring one adult along with you. Most advice will be carried out over the phone in line with government safety guidelines.

If you have not received your letter, please let us know ASAP by emailing enquiry@callywith.ac.uk

NEW GUIDANCE - Tuesday 18 August 2020

You will now receive your centre assessed grades for your GCSE results.

Updated GCSE results will be posted on Thursday 20 August as previously planned and are now also available online here.
