Accessing your exam results: guidance for students

2. If you need to create an account please visit the Go4Schools website and log on as a first time user with your school email address or reset password if you need to. (You reset password link will be sent to your school email address).
This has been a difficult and anxious time for many students as a result of the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic. If you would like any further support or information about resit opportunities please do get in touch to make an appointment with a member of staff.
Autumn Exam Series
You have the opportunity to resit your results in the Autumn. The resit exam windows are as follows:
AS/A Levels Mon 5th October – Fri 23rd October
GCSE Mon 2nd November – Mon 23rd November
For GCSE and AS students, we advise that you contact your (new) Sixth Form/College directly to request to resit any exams you wish to. Whilst we can and will support you at Bluecoat Aspley, it might be in your best interests to resit at your new provision if you are moving on to study elsewhere, where you will be studying daily and settled in by then.
A Level students wishing to resit exams should register their wish to do so with the Exams Officer. This is a big decision as any additional revision and resits could distract you from your new courses of study, so please think carefully about whether this is the right decision for you.
For any queries related to your results, resits or appeals, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’d like to talk to someone for further guidance or support about your next steps, please make an appointment to talk to a member of staff by phone call or at a face to face meeting by calling 0115 929 7445.
