Exam results day


Congratulations to the thousands of young people receiving their A Level results today – after an extraordinary and challenging year, each and every one of them should be proud of their hard work and achievements.  

As students collect their A Level and other results today, the government has sought to ensure that every young person receives the grades that reflect their abilities and potential - so they can progress to the next stage of their lives with confidence.

  • Young people have shown incredible resilience throughout the pandemic, continuing their education amid unprecedented challenges and while there is no perfect replacement for exams, their efforts deserve to be rewarded fairly.
  • That is why after determining, alongside Ofqual, that it would not be fair for exams to go ahead again this year, the government put in place measures to ensure students received grades from those who know them best – their teachers, through a combination of mock exams, coursework and essays with rigorous checks in place.
  • By ensuring students receive grades which truly reflect their ability and potential, we can help every young person progress to the next stage of their education or training, and onto the future they deserve.
