A level results day 2020

This year’s A level results day is certainly like none before it, with centre-assessed grades replacing exams and socially distanced school collection.

The Secretary of State for Education, Gavin Williamson, announced earlier this week that students “could accept their calculated grade, appeal to receive a valid mock result, or sit autumn exams” keeping whichever grade is highest.  This comes after the announcement from Ofqual that some students’ grades were being revised from their teachers’ centre-assessed grades because of their school’s past performance.

The figures released today show around 27.9% of results were A* and A grades (up from 25.5% in 2019) and 78.4% were in the A*-C range (up from 75.8% in 2019).

However 36% of results have been lowered by one grade and 3% by two grades. 2% of results have been increased.
