For qualifications where exams and assessments are continuing, the results will be released as and when they are processed by the Awarding Body. Candidates will receive an email confirming their result to their College email address.

Post Results Services

If there are serious ground for concern about a result then the College can request a Post Results Service from the appropriate Awarding Body. The process should be started as soon as possible after consultation with the Head of Department concerned. The final date for submission to the Awarding Bodies is within three weeks after results are issued. Details of the procedures, the fees involved and application form can be found in the document below.

Please note, some qualifications are not eligible for a Post Results Service, the service/charge is per paper and results can go down as well as up.

Post results service info document


The Awarding Bodies issue certificates well after the exams have taken place (usually at the end of October for summer exams). Certificates are posted to the candidate’s home address once they have been processed by the Exams Team.

We advise candidates that have moved home address during the academic year to update their address with the Admissions Team at the front of the College if they have not already done so.
