In January 2021, it was announced that the summer series examinations would be replaced by Teacher Assessed Grades designed to capture the level at which the student was working. The Oxford Open Learning Trust has now completed TAGs for those students who asked Oxford Open Learning to grade them and passed these over to the examination boards for external quality assurance. Our Policy for determining grades can be found here.
Students will be informed of their grades on August the 10th for A levels and August the 12th for GCSE/International GCSE. For more information please see the results page.
Appealing results of the Summer 2021 exam series
Special arrangements have been made for appeals in 2021. Appeals this year are a two-stage process:
- If you are unhappy with your grade, you should first ask us for an administrative check. Contact our student advice team once your examination results have been released; they will send you a form to complete and return to us.
- If you are still unhappy with the examination grade, then you can appeal to the examination board. On appeal, your grade may go up or down. Your grade will only be changed if your original grade could not possibly have been awarded using reasonable academic judgement. For example, if you have been awarded a B and need an A, The exam board moderator will not change your grade, even if they believe the work to be of an A-grade standard if it is reasonable for another tutor to have assessed it as a grade B.
Extraordinary Autumn Examination series
There will be a full Autumn sitting this year and this is our recommended route for students who are unhappy with the grades awarded to them.
