Tell us how you feel about this year’s GCSE and A-level results

This year’s A-level and GCSE results days are different to any other as coronavirus has prevented pupils from being able to take exams.

Instead thousands of school leavers across the country are receiving calculated grades to help them progress onto university, work or training.

That means schools have been asked to predict what results their students were most likely to have achieved if they were able to sit their exams.

The grades will be based on pupils’ classwork, non-exam assessments, mock exams and other factors.

The Government also announced on Tuesday that pupils will have a “safety net” of being able to appeal if their calculated grades are lower than those they received in mock exams.

But we’re interested in how you feel about the changes – please share your feelings about the changes by filling out the survey below.

Today hundreds of students across Derbyshire received their calculated grades on a results day like no other.

Some schools had arranged for students to visit in person to collect their grades – with social-distancing measures in place. Others sent results to students via email but asked them to call if they had concerns.

Several schools are set to appeal some of the results and are shocked that exam boards have scaled down the grades teachers had originally assessed.
