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 until at least October (even if a student leaves the school).  In the first instance, it is our preference to direct communications via school emails, so we encourage students to check they can still access their Sheldon account.


Summer 2021 Results Dates

AS and A level results will be issued to students on Tuesday 10 August 2021.

GCSE results will be issued to students on Thursday 12 August 2021.

Vocational or technical qualifications linked to moving on to further or higher education should also be issued to studetns either on or before these dates.

Summer 2020 Exam Certificates have now been distrubuted to students.  Autumn 2020 certificates will arrive in school by the end of March, and we will forward these to students as soon as possible.

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.

Certificates from summer exams are normally issued to schools during late October/November.  We then contact students to collect their certificates, hopefully prior to the Christmas break.  We do urge students to collect their certificates as schools are required to destroy them after a year.


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:
