This year marks the first year post Covid-19 that full GCSE exams have taken place. So, when is the all-important results day, and what changes have been made for the class of 2022?

Results

GCSE results will be published on Thursday August, 25. Teachers are not allowed to tell students’ their final grade before results day.

Appeals

Students will be able to appeal their grades, and a final decision will be made by the exam board. Grades can go up or down as the result of an appeal. Appeal fees are likely to be scrapped to allow all students in England the chance to appeal their grades at no additional cost.

Students can appeal to their school if they feel teachers did not go through the right process when issuing grades, or if there has been an administrative error. They can also challenge a grade if they feel that circumstances such as a bereavement at the time of an assessment, were not taken into account. The school can then decide to change the grade if it agrees that a mistake has been made.

If this appeal is unsuccessful and a student is still unhappy with their grade, they can appeal to the exam board.

Resits

Students who are unhappy with their grade can choose to enter again for the summer 2023 exams.

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, there was a special additional session for GCSE resits in October 2021 but this is not an option in 2022.
