When is A-level results day 2020?

The summer 2020 exams have been cancelled, and your grades will be determined by your teachers

Schools have shut down and all of this summer’s exams have been cancelled.

But if you were due to take AS-level or A-level exams this year, you’ll still be getting grades for your subjects and the exams regulator Ofqual has said that all student grades will be issued on a specific results day.

When is A-level results day 2020?

Before exams were cancelled, A-level exam results were planned to be released on Thursday 13 August 2020.

After the cancellation of A-level and AS-level exams, that date was thrown into confusion. Soon after exams were cancelled, the government's education secretary Gavin Williamson said it was hoped that results would be out by the end of July.

In a later announcement on how students' exam grades would be decided, the exam regulator Ofqual said results would be released no later than the original date of 13 August.

But Williamson has now provided official confirmation of the A-level and AS-level results day, in a comment piece published by the i newspaper.

"GCSE students will get their results on Thursday 20 August, while those who are awaiting A-level results will get theirs the previous Thursday, the 13th," said Williamson. 

"These dates are the same as those published at the start of this academic year, and I hope will provide further clarity for all those young people receiving results in the summer."

Williamson's comments confirm that, despite the cancellation of exams, A-level results day is on Thursday 13 August 2020.

It is not yet known whether students will be able to go to their schools and colleges to collect their results in person, or whether another system will be put in place to issue results.
