Resources for students receiving their GCSE, AS and A level qualifications this summer
Ofqual has published resources for students receiving their qualifications this summer. These resources include a student guide to post-16 qualification results that provides students with additional information to help them understand how their results have been awarded, what to expect on results day, and the options available to them if they are unhappy with their result.
Ofqual has also published a student guide to appeals and malpractice or maladministration complaints in summer 2020. This information will help students understand if they have a reason to make an appeal or a complaint about malpractice or maladministration, including concerns about bias or discrimination.
