Teacher Assessed Grades

The Telford Langley School has determined grades in accordance with the JCQ guidance[1] and has submitted these grades to the relevant awarding organisation by the required deadline.
To support your understanding, please refer to Student guide to awarding: summer 2021[2] which tells you how you will get your qualifications in summer 2021 and where you can get more information.

Results

On candidate statements of results (results slips) and certificates, grades will be reported in the same way as in previous years.

Results will be issued on results day in August as follows:

Date

Qualification type

Thursday 12 August

GCSE and other Level 1/2 qualifications

Arrangements for results day

Students will be able to collect results on Thursday 12 August between 9am – 12pm from the Sports Hall. Students will arrive through the back gate and make their way to the Sports Hall. Future Focus will be available if students wish to discuss their further education.

Concerns about your results

When you receive your results, if you think that a grade is wrong, your first step should be to speak to a member of staff on site on Thursday 12 August between 9am-12pm. After 12pm students will need to email langley.exams@taw.org.uk for advice.

Further details of the arrangements for appeals are provided below.

Certificates

In November The Telford Langley School will receive the certificates from the awarding organisations. We will write a letter informing you of how you will be able to collect your certificates.


The arrangements for appeals

Section 5.4 of JCQ Appeals Guidance Summer 2021 (A guide to appeals processes – Summer 2021) states:

To decide whether to request a review, students will need access to certain information before results day, or on results day, if it has not already been made available to them. This must include:

a. the centre policy

b. the sources of evidence used to determine the student’s grade, along with the marks/grades associated with them

c. details of any variations in evidence used based on disruption to what that student was taught

d. details of any special circumstances that have been considered in determining their grade, e.g. access arrangements/reasonable adjustments or mitigating circumstances such as illness

There are two stages to the appeals process:

· Stage 1 - centre review

· Stage 2 - appeal to the awarding organisation

The Telford Langley School will support its students through the centre review and awarding organisation appeals process.

The information below describes the arrangements in place at The Telford Langley School for conducting a centre review and (where applicable) submitting an appeal to the awarding organisation following a centre review.

Stage 1 – Centre review

If a student does not consider they have been issued with the correct grade, they can do either of the following for the school to check if an administrative or procedural error has occurred

o Thursday 12 August between 9am-12pm:

Complete the Student Request Form for Centre Reviews and Appeals while on school site

o Thursday 12 August after 12pm – Friday 3 September before 9am:

Email a request to langley.exams@taw.org.uk

The Telford Langley School will then email the student a copy of the interactive JCQ Student Request Form for Centre Reviews and Appeals (saved in the candidate’s name and candidate number) as an attachment.

· On receipt, the student should open the attachment, read the important instructions, fully complete section A. Student request of the Stage one – centre review form including electronic signature and date. The form should be saved and returned as an email attachment to langley.exams@taw.org.uk

· The outcome of the centre review may result in the student’s grade remaining the same, being lowered or raised

· On completion of the review The Telford Langley School will complete section B. Centre review outcome of the form and share with the student as a record of the outcome, in sufficient time prior to the relevant appeal to awarding organisation deadline.

· If an administrative or procedural error is found, The Telford Langley School will submit a request to the awarding organisation to correct the error and amend the grade without the need to submit an appeal to the awarding organisation


Stage 2 – Appeal to the awarding organisation

· An appeal to the awarding organisation will only be submitted if the first stage, centre review, has been completed and the outcome of the first stage has been issued to the student

· The awarding organisation will not be able to consider an appeal that is based solely on differences of opinion - if the student wants to improve their grade they may want to consider entering for the autumn exam series

· If the student believes there is still an error following the centre review, or if the awarding organisation has made an administrative error, or the student considers that the grade awarded was an unreasonable exercise of academic judgement, the student can submit a request to The Telford Langley School to proceed with an appeal to the awarding organisation on their behalf

· To proceed, the student must complete the Stage two – appeal to awarding organisation section of the form, including electronic signature and date. The form should be saved and returned as an email attachment to langley.exams@taw.org.uk

· The Telford Langley School will then submit the appeal on the student’s behalf according to the requirements of the awarding organisation to which it is being submitted

· The awarding organisation will determine the grade at appeal and the outcome will be final

· The outcome of the appeal may result in the grade remaining the same, being lowered or raised

· There is no further opportunity to appeal the outcome to the awarding organisation

· The awarding organisation’s appeal outcome letter will be provided by email to the student by The Telford Langley School as soon as reasonably practical after the outcome letter from the awarding organisation is received in the centre

· Should the student still remain concerned their grade was incorrect, they may be able to apply for a procedural review

· The appeal outcome letter will include the next appropriate steps, where applicable, to apply for a procedural review to the Exam Procedures Review Service (EPRS)

Note - Once a finding has been made you cannot withdraw your request for a centre review or appeal. If your grade has been lowered, you will not be able to revert back to the original grade you received on results day.
