Student guide to post-16 qualification results: summer 2020

A guide for those receiving qualification results in England this summer.

The grades you receive this year will carry the same value as any other year, so you can compete on a level playing field with students from previous and future years.

This guide should help you understand how results have been awarded this year and where to find more information.


Your results, what next?

Exams and assessments were cancelled this year due to coronavirus (COVID-19) but most students will still receive grades in time to progress to further study or employment.

You will find resources on this page to explain how your results will be calculated, and the options available to you if you do not receive the grade you wanted.
