Exams & Results day
At St James you have regular assessments in class which will be marked by your teachers. At different points throughout the year you will also have PPE (Pre-public exams) where you sit mock exam papers for the subjects that you have. These will be marked by your teachers and feedback given. The aim of these exams is to prepare you for the exams you will sit at the end of year 11 so that you are confident in writing for a set length of time and are familiar with the rules and conditions of exams.
Results day summer 2018
GCSE results will be published and available for collection on Thursday 23rd August 2018
You will be able to collect your results from 10am – 12noon.
You will not be able to come into school before 10am and you will need to sign for your results. If you would like someone else to collect your results (including your parents) that person will need signed permission from you to collect your results. This can either be brought in on results day or you can give this to our Exams Officer Kirsty Duke before the end of the summer term, there is a form available to use for this in the GCSE handbook.
Any year 11 results not collected by 12 noon will be posted to your home address. If you change your address after leaving school in June, please inform us of your new address. All other year groups’ results will be held securely until students return to school in September when they can be collected from the exams Office. It is not possible to collect results later on the 23rd or on a different day.
College/careers staff and teaching staff will be present on the day if you need advice after receiving your results.
Certificates are issued if you achieve grade A*-G or 1-9 at GCSE and Pass to Distinction*at BTEC. These arrive in school about 3 months after you have received your results and will be available at a presentation Evening in November/December date TBC. The date for this is in the GCSE handbook; however we will write to you shortly beforehand to invite you and your parents/carers to the evening.
You MUST keep your certificates in a safe place – A charge of approximately £45 is made by Exam Boards to replace each certificate – In most circumstances they cannot be replaced.
