With less than one week until results day, today’s update highlights extra resources and support we have created for schools, now available on our website. These resources and support will help schools communicate results, as well as next steps, to students and parents.
We also have further guidance on running exams in the November 2020 series.
We are also including a podcast from UCAS on what happens on results day, as well as resources from a number of universities on applying with Cambridge qualifications.
We will send our next update to schools on 11 August 2020.
We know many of you have questions about results day, and how this year may differ due to the Covid-19 outbreak. We have created lots of guidance and support to help you on our Preparing for results day web page.
This includes information on when and how results are released, accessing results and using our candidate results service. It also includes guidance on sharing predicted grades and rank orders with candidates.
We have also produced a letter that you may wish to share with candidates and their families before results day and this is available to download.
Results day is likely to be different this year for many of you due to the public health challenges involved in potentially bringing together large groups of students to collect their results. To help you think through how to plan and manage results day at your centre we have prepared some guidance and you can find this on our Managing results day webpage.
To help you understand what results information and data will be available to your centre, and what is different for the June 2020 series as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, please read the information on our Results information web page. We will publish full details about our standardisation method on 11 August.
Students and families will want to know how their grades have been worked out and why the process we have used is fair. We have produced guidance to help you explain results and the process for awarding grades in this series to students and families. It also discusses the options available to students if they are not happy with their results.
Our guide for exams officers and heads of centre, will help you run November 2020 exams safely and securely. Use the guide, as well as the guidance in our current Cambridge Handbook, when planning the exam series in your centre. To make it easier to use and understand, we have structured the guide around the phases of the Cambridge Exams Cycle. You can download the guide from our November 2020 series web page.
We have engaged extensively with universities to help students continue their educational journeys. Students applying to UK universities can find out more about what happens on results day by listening to our podcast Applying to UK universities – UCAS & results day by Mark Wilson, Customer Experience Manager, at UCAS. Additionally, students interested in studying in Europe can learn more about applying to university in Spain during the pandemic.
MIT and the University in Maryland in the US have recorded short messages to reassure Cambridge students that grades in June 2020 will be accepted in the same way as previous exam series.
