Examinations Information

Exam Results

Results are the property of the student and will not be passed to anyone else, via any method, without the express written permission of the student. 

Results can be emailed or passed to a third party provided the student has given their written consent (students please email exams@sheldonschool.co.uk well before results day).  Unfortunately results cannot be provided over the telephone. 

Students' Sheldon email accounts will remain active through the summer (even if a student leaves the school).  In the first instance, it is our preference to direct communications via school email, so we encourage students to check they can still access their Sheldon account.

For students aiming to progress to the Sixth Form, the result of their application will be emailed with their results.

Summer 2021 Results Dates

AS and A level results were issued on Tuesday 10 August 2021.

Summer 2022 Exams and Results

We are currently waiting for dates for summer 2022 public examinations and publication of results dates.  The following links for exam boards may prove useful:


- Eduqas (Welsh Board)


- Pearson (Edexcel)


Summer 2021 certificates will be available to students in November, and we aim to distribute all of these by Christmas.  We do urge students to collect their certificates as schools are required to destroy them after a year.

Y13 leavers' certificates will be available for collection at the Christmas reunion on 15 December 2021. If not collected then, they will be posted home using the recorded delivery service.

Exam board results certificates are important legal documents and should be retained carefully.  If certificates have been lost, and exam board documentation is required, information on how to do this can be found here.  Exam boards do charge for this service.  In some cases, depending upon date, the school can provide proof of attainment from our records.

Regulation of Exams

Most of the exams at Sheldon are regulated by JCQ, the Joint Council for Qualifications.  This body is responsible for the framework around how exams and other assessments are conducted.  More information can be found here.

It is important that students are aware of the expectations and responsibilities with regard to exams:
