A Level Examination results

A Level Results 2020

Following the announcement from the Government on 17th August 2020, students in England received centre assessment grades for their A and AS Level results.

Ofqual had consulted on and implemented a standardisation process for exam results, but the system resulted in too many inconsistent and unfair outcomes for A and AS Level students.  Subsequently, the Government and Ofqual jointly agreed to revert to centre assessment grades (CAGs), which are the grades which schools and colleges assessed students were most likely to have achieved, had exams gone ahead.

Students who received A or AS Level results calculated using the standardisation on 13th August were reissued their centre assessment grade the following week.  However, if a student’s calculated grade was higher than the centre assessment grade, their calculated grade remained.

 

Larkmead School’s Sixth Form forms part of the Abingdon Consortium for Education.  Results are published as a consortium and can be found below as well as in more detail on their webpage by following this link.

We are once again proud of our contribution towards the Abingdon Consortium’s success and of the achievements of the students based at Larkmead School.  The decision by the government to return to the school’s centre assessed grades as the primary piece of evidence used to award grades this summer was welcomed by all staff.  We all feel that they truly reflect the ability of the outgoing Year 13 students and will enable them to successfully embark on the next part of each of their lives. Many students have gone on to study at university while others have started work.  Meanwhile, the sixth form at Larkmead School continues to go from strength to strength and is a real asset to the school

Many congratulations to our A Level students, who all showed incredibly impressive motivation, determination and resilience whilst coping with the many difficulties that presented themselves during 2020.  We wish them every success for the future.
