A-level results day: Students prepare to pick up results

Thousands of pupils will be receiving their A-level results this morning.
Exams were cancelled this year due to the pandemic so the results have been estimated.
Schools and colleges were asked to predict the grades pupils would have achieved in each subject if they had sat the exams.
These predictions were sent to the exam boards along with the order of who they think will do best.
The exam boards took into account this information, along with previous exam results at the school, to make adjustments to the predictions.

In what the Government calls a ‘triple lock’ approach, pupils can choose the highest result out of the mock exam, teacher estimate, or they can choose to sit an exam in the autumn.
This means that if pupils receive an estimated grade lower than their mock exam, they can appeal to Ofqual through their school.
