A-level and GCSE results 2021

Education schools and colleges Published Monday, 9th August 2021

Schools across Worcestershire are ready to open their doors for students to collect their A-level and GCSE results.

Students are set to receive their A-level and BTEC National results on Tuesday 10 August and GCSE and BTEC First results on Thursday 12 August.

There has been no official Government guidance released at this point this year on arrangements for the collection of exam results during August.  

Schools will have their own guidance in place. Parents and students should therefore check their schools’ website for particular protocols when collecting exam results. The safety of students, parents and staff continues to be a priority.

Following the cancellation of the summer 2021 exams due to the Coronavirus pandemic, students will be once again be provided with calculated grades this year to enable them to progress to further study or employment. 

Exam boards have been working to standardise grades to ensure consistency of judgements between different schools and colleges, using a model developed with the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual).

Councillor Marcus Hart, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Education said: “During yet another challenging year, our schools have put in a fantastic effort to deliver these assessments and I would like to thank all the teachers involved in this process.

“Receiving exam results is a key milestone for many young people’s lives and this year’s students have once again finished their school years during the Coronavirus pandemic.

“I’d like to congratulate all our Worcestershire students on their hard work and dedication. This is a time for making big decisions about what to do next and regardless whether that is remaining in education, starting an apprenticeship or entering into employment, it is important to know that there are lots of different options and support available.”

“I would like to wish all of our Worcestershire students the best of luck for results day and with the next steps in their career.”

Worcestershire County Council will be running careers clinics this summer in partnership with Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership which will support Worcestershire’s students to look at their next steps following their exam results .
