Getting your Exam Results

Update: 20/08/2020

Following Ofqual’s announcement that A Level and GCSE students are to receive Centre Assessed Grades, Pearson have reviewed the impact on BTEC students and have decided to apply this same principle to students receiving BTECs this summer.

This means that grades will be looked at again and Centre Assessment Grades applied. The reason for this is to ensure fair outcomes between the BTEC qualifications and the A-levels.

Please be assured that your grade will not go down. There is potential for it to go up.

At the time of writing Pearson have not given a timeline for the re-issue of grades. As soon as we can provide you with further information we will be in touch. You can follow the developments here.

We understand that this situation is not ideal and hope it will be resolved quickly.

If you have any more questions or concerns, please contact us on

Getting your Exam Results

While you're looking forward to finding out the results of all of your hard work, we understand that you may have a few questions about what to expect on the day.

You can read official guidance from Ofqual here. If you have any further questions about your results, please contact us at

When will I get my results?

If you’re waiting for results for accredited Level 3 courses (such as BTEC), you’ll receive them on Thursday 13th August. If you’re waiting for GCSE or Level 2 results, you’ll receive them on Thursday 20th August.

How will I get my results?

You’ll receive an email (at the address you used when you enrolled with us) containing your results from 8am on the date they’re published- so Thursday 13th August for accredited Level 3 courses (such as BTEC), and Thursday 20th August for GCSEs and Level 2. Certificates will be posted to you shortly after. For all other accredited courses, students will receive either an email or a physical certificate in the post by the end of October, depending on your awarding body.

Okay, I’ve got them- now what do I do?

First things first- celebrate! You’ve worked so hard, so take some time to feel proud. If you’ve applied to university through UCAS, check your profile for your next steps. If you’ve applied to a college or an apprenticeship, give them a call with your transcript at the ready. At Morley, we offer a wide range of Level 3, Foundation Diploma and Access to Higher Education courses that you can progress to. And if you’ve decided that you want to apply for higher education, there’s still time! Call UCAS clearing or get in touch with Morley to discover your options.

My grades aren’t what I expected- help!

If you haven’t done as well as you expected, don’t worry- there are still plenty of options available to you. Speak to the university or college you were planning on attending- they may still take you on, especially if you only just missed out on your grades. And if you need some advice about next steps or, in some cases, resitting your exams, give us a call on 020 7450 1889.

But… Covid-19?

The Department for Education (DfE) has confirmed that you’ll receive your grades in a timely manner so as not to affect progression, and that they’ll fairly reflect the work you’ve put in. Grades will be based on previous performance including GCSEs, mock exams, non-exam assessment such as coursework, and your predicted grades. If you don’t feel that your grades accurately reflect your performance this academic year, there will be an opportunity to sit an exam later in the year. More information will be available on request for each awarding body once results have been published.
