BTEC and C'Tech double grades are printed differently on your statement of results. To help you understand the grades you have achieved, here is an equivalence table between the grades printed on your statement of results and the actual grades
D2 = Distinction* Distinction* (or two D*s)
D1 = Distinction* Distinction (or one D* and one D)
The rigorous process followed by Kingsmead to determine the TAGs this year, is outlined in our centre policy - here - and summarised here. At the end of this process, teachers felt that the TAGs were a fair and accurate reflection of students' performance this year.
The standard evidence used by teachers to determine the TAGs is outlined here. If you want to request more information about the standard evidence used to determine a student's TAG (i.e. the marks and grades - where the latter are applicable), you can do this for one or more subjects by sending your request to email@example.com.
All students have the opportunity to appeal their grade if they meet the eligibility criteria (see here). It is important to note that an appeal may result in a grade being lowered, staying the same, or going up. So if a student puts in an appeal and their grade is lowered, they will receive the lower mark.
There is also the option to resit GCSEs, A levels and some AS levels in the autumn, which may be preferable to some students. The design, content and assessment of these papers will be the same as in a normal year.
Any queries regarding this should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any student wanting to understand the implications of taking these autumn exams on their admission to university, should speak to the university from which they have received an offer, after they have received their results. More information about your options can be found on the school website.
