Examination Information

Summer 2020 results

All results have been created using a calculated grade approach set out by OFQUAL due to the pandemic and subsequent cancellation of exams. The College has followed a meticulous process to generate and report these grades to the awarding bodies. The awarding bodies have also followed a process of standardisation which has resulted in the grades awarded.
