Year 11

GCSE results

The results day is Thursday, 20th August. Pupils will receive their exam results on the Edulink app.  The results will be available from 8.00am.  A printed copy will be put in the post on Thursday. Read a full letter to Year 11 explaining the process.

How to get your results on Edulink

Log onto Edulink app (pupils can use their usual school login) and click on the Exams icon.

On the next screen the menu at the top right gives these three options.  Click on exam results to see a list of all your results for this summer.

What your grades look like

When you go to the results page, you will see a list that looks like this:

The middle column gives you the name of the examination, and the next column to the right gives you the grade that you achieved. Subjects may appear more than once if they are composed of units or modules.  Only one of the lines will show the overall subject grade.

This graphic shows the grades that you might achieve and their equivalence on the 1 to 9 scale.  The grades may be abbreviated, for example a level 2 distinction* could be shown as L2D* or D*2:
