A – Level, AS Level and GCSE results based on Teacher Assessed Grades to be released this week.

  • Posted

The topic of teacher assessed grades (TAGs) for GCSE, AS and A-Level students this year due to the cancellation of public examinations was discussed in our blog earlier this year.

Results days are now upon us with TAGs being released on Tuesday 10 August 2021 and Thursday 12 August 2021 for AS/A-Levels and GCSEs respectively.

Our earlier blog sets out how a student can appeal against the grades that they receive if they feel that they are not accurate.

All schools and colleges must submit appeals to the Exam Boards by 17 September 2021 (or 23 August 2021 if a student wants their appeal to be considered as a priority because they have not had their first choice of university place confirmed).[1] These appeals are submitted on behalf of students, but each school and college will have their own internal deadlines for receiving and reviewing appeals from students. It is important that those deadlines are understood and adhered to.

We understand how difficult it can be to navigate the education system in ordinary circumstances but even more so this year.  The Education Law Team at IBB Law is here to help should you need advice or require assistance following receipt of your results.
