    Hello, everyone!

    This is my first post here and I'm quietly hoping I've posted it in the right space.

    So here's my problem. I have a visual impairment and use large print instead of standard print. I'd really like to be able to read my GCSE results on my own; primarily because I consider it private. The school from which I will be getting my results are supposed to modify everything I read and convert it into large print. However, they hardly ever do. Great, isn't it(!) Grrrr. I am wondering if there is a generic template on which GCSE results are printed that I can look at and get an idea of the layout to give me the best chance of reading my results myself. Also looking for advice from other people with sight loss on what THEY did.

    Thanks guys!

    Hello Henry. Here is a sample of what a GCSE results letter typically looks like: Edexel sample letter. The layout differs between the different exam boards but largely they look the same. Your candidate information is at the topic, the subjects are printed to the left hand side and on the right hand side is the list of UMS marks and grades you have achieved per module, along with the final grade for the subject or course.

    Hey there! This is what a generic results sheet looks like (not exam board specific).

    My dad actually has a visual impairment. One day his retinas detached but they managed to save one eye although the vision isn't great in it. Maybe take a magnifying glass with you? Would that help you?

    Good idea but unfortunately a magnifying glass wouldn't be much use. I'll probably just take my guide human (dogs are totes uncool!) in with me!
