Examination Information

External Candidates

Due to the current pandemic and the complex nature of the social distancing and ‘bubble’ measures the college are having to operate under, Derby College will not be accepting any external examination candidates for academic year 2020/2021. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and advise that anyone who wishes to sit exams as an external candidate, contact the awarding bodies direct to seek advice on this.

BTEC Results Update:

Please be aware that all results have now been received by the college and we are making arrangements for these to go out imminently to each students’ college email address. If you are expecting a BTEC result and do not receive this by end of Play next Monday 28th September then please contact exams by emailing examsgroup@derby-college.ac.uk and this will be looked into.

BTEC 2020 appeals

The deadline for appeals has passed now, however, due to the fact that the BTEC results have been received so late, we are working with the awarding body to agree an alternative deadline for this. Therefore, for those students that have only just received their result only please follow the below process if you wish to make an appeal:
