  • Call your college or sixth form or future employer or over the next few days via phone or email using its “contact us” page.
  •  If you cannot get through, send an email to their admissions department asking for clarity on how they will be dealing with GCSE results, leaving your phone number (and perhaps that of a parent/carer who is with you).
  • If this applies – explain that your grades are below the grades you were expected to obtain.
  • Ask whether they will still offer you a place
  • If they cannot give you this information yet, ask for a timeframe for a response. This may be several days.
  • If your teachers or you think that your centre might appeal the grades received by your cohort, because of issues with how they arrived at your centre assessed grade, for instance, tell the school/college/employer this and tell them that you will keep them informed.
  • Stay calm! Many students will be in the same boat and the government is under pressure to make this fair for all of you.
  • Be prepared to wait and keep an eye on the Ofqual and DfE websites. You will need to be patient, but also you will need to be ready to keep seeking updates from your college/school/employer and getting in regular contact.
  • Ask your centre to submit an appeal on your behalf
  • Issue a subject access request.
