Exam results FAQs

The government announced in February 2021 that qualification results for this year will be based on Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs). We are working to guidance from the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) to ensure that all students at the college who should receive results this summer will do so. You can find details for about all of the Awarding Bodies from the JCQ. 

TAGs are grades that have been worked out by teachers, using a range of evidence of performance including coursework, mock exams, questions from exam boards, and other work that has been completed such as in-class tests, to ensure that it is valid, reliable, objective and free from biasThis is for all types of qualifications: GCSEs and vocational qualifications such as BTECs. You can read more about how we have assessed students work in our policies
