The Examinations Officer is Mrs Carol-Anne Lale, contactable by email on c.lale@ralphallenschool.com or telephone 01225 838014.  If you have any queries about exam results, please contact the subject teacher or Mrs Lale.

RESULTS DAY Information

Results will be available for collection from the Lee Sixth Form Centre. If you wish a relative or friend to collect your results you must send a signed letter of authorisation with the collector. Results will not be given over the telephone under any circumstance.

Being present on results day is advisable so you are able to discuss options available should your results not be as expected.

If you wish to have your results emailed please send a request to ExamResults@ralphallenschool.com with the level (GCSE, AS or A level) in the title and your name. Emails will be sent after 1pm.  

A Level results Thursday 17 August 2017

A Level results will be available for collection 8 am - 11 am 

If you have applied to University then please bring your UCAS number and password so you can log on to UCAS Track at school.

Do not come before 8.00 am as we need time to organise the results and prepare the best advice for those who need it. Some students will receive notifications from universities via email or track so access to a computer is very helpful. We have computers available at school. Ms Haggett, Ms Rutter and Mr Daniell will also be available until 2.30 pm if students have further questions. 

AS Level results will be available for collection 11am - 1pm 

Staff will be available at school to help you with your queries although priority will be given to students with university places pending.

post result services

You may know that you did not do well in a particular exam and accept that your result is fair. However, if you are seriously concerned that your grade may not be correct (e.g. significantly lower than your estimated grade and not what you expected after taking the exam) you can request a Post Result service. Please see the Post Results Service Forms for details of services, fees and deadlines.

AS & A level or GCSE

We would suggest that unless you have a University place pending you should request the priority access to script service in the first instance and check your paper against the mark scheme which will be available from the Exam Office. This will allow you to then go on to request a review of marking within the deadline should you feel that the mark scheme has not been correctly applied.

Please remember a review of marking is not a remark. A senior examiner will check that the original examiner has correctly applied the mark scheme.

Please note that grades may be lower than, higher or the same as result of a review of marking. We can only process applications with a signed post results form together with payment.

Certificates

Your certificates are valuable documents. Valuable in the sense that replacement copies can cost up to £45 per certificate but also as they are proof you studied at Ralph Allen and completed the course. This is irrespective of the grades you achieved.

If you go on to further education anytime in the future you will need to produce them. Many employers will also ask to see them. It is in your interest to collect your certificates even if you don’t think you will ever need them.

We are only obliged to keep your certificates for one year after which they will be securely destroyed. Replacements will only be available directly from the relevant Examination Boards at a cost as previously mentioned.

How to get your certificates.

The best time to collect your certificates is during certificate presentation evenings. For students sitting exams this summer details of the presentation evenings will be posted nearer the time. 

GCSE certificates will be available to collect from the school main reception between 11-14 December 2017

GCE certificates will be available to collect from the school main reception between 8 - 12 January  2018

 

Previous year's certificates

There is limited availability to collect previous years certificates and by prior arrangement only. Certificates will not be available during examinations or results periods. You should either;

1.    Email Mrs Tooley, Examinations Assistant  s.tooley@ralphallenschool.com asking to arrange collection. If you are unable to collect certificates yourself you may email Mrs Tooley with details of who you would like to collect them on your behalf. The nominated person will need to bring photo ID with them upon collection. Unfortunately if we cannot see any ID we will not be able to release your certificates.

2.    Use this Certificate Postage Request Form  to request postage of your certificates with a payment of £3.50 to cover the cost of posting and packaging. Cheques payable to Ralph Allen School.
