How do you collect your child’s GCSE Results?

  • Each school has different arrangements, but most schools welcome students to collect their results in person if they wish, from around 8 am.
  • Many schools will also publish the results on their online portal or send them out via email.

How do you prepare for the day?

We advise parents and students to be prepared, focussed and fast moving. Having conversations about each possible scenario and plan A, B and C are important.

Can my child retake their GCSE exams?

Yes, GCSEs can be retaken. However, low results do not always mean they need to retake, or that their next steps are affected. Speak to your child’s school about what their results might mean for their sixth form choices. Try to take into account how this might affect A-Level or IB subjects, and then possible university choices from there. Knowledge is power when it comes to planning the future, so taking the time to strategise based on various routes can be very helpful. There are various ways that students can re-take their GCSEs if required. Start by talking to your child’s school, we’re also available to help.
