Hi.
For anyone who has SEN, and has got upcoming GCSE orvA Level results, I am wondering how this will affect our results.
Will it restrict our grades or have a positive outcome?
If anyone has any information or anything, plesase let me know as it’s a little worrying. Xx

I’m SEN with an EHCP at college. It certainly won’t restrict your grades. That’d be discrimination. It will all be down to how you performed throughout the year. Attendance/ homework completion/ previous tests/ mock results etc are what they will go off. They may take in consideration additional needs if it affected work completion during lockdown (eg autistic people not able to complete work due to change of routine)

I have informally been told I have failed this year (after getting distinctions last year!!) so there’s definitely not a positive advantage being given, but in my case it would have been hard to justify haha.

It’ll be okay. xx

Work completed during lockdown was not meant to be used as evidence for calculated grades so this would not be relevant.

On my course, a whole module and ‘specialist project’ was to be completed during lockdown and was used towards the calculation of the final grade. Failure of either of them and you failed the whole course, even if you were passing everything pre lockdown.

Just because it’s not relevant at your place of education, does not mean it’s the same everywhere.

What Is said applies to all GCSEs - although I accept that people do post about other qualifications in this GCSE area.

I would imagine the problem would be if you were only recently diagnosed, and hadn’t tried taking an exam with extra time, coloured paper, etc. before lockdown.
If all your mock papers showed your full potential, I can’t see why it would affect your grade.

Hi! I have SEN and I'm awaiting my GCSE results. My main concern is that teachers will underestimate us because of our difficulties (which has definitely happened to me before), making us lower in the rankings and/or predicting worse grades. I don't really have any extra info, just that they're obviously not allowed to discriminate against us, but I wanted to say that you're not alone in this! Best of luck for results day xx

I’m getting my A level results on Thursday and I have a vision impairment. I got 100% extra time, unlimited rest breaks, bigger papers and when I did my GCSEs, some subjects required a scribe to write my answers (this only applied in maths, science, sports studies and IT). This carried over to A levels but didn’t take any A levels that required a scribe as they were essay based subjects and mocks were done on a laptop. I was told that our teachers would have to take any SEN students’ arrangements into account when ranking them and making judgements. In my sixth form, most of my teachers knew my from when I was lower down the school so knew my situation and my mock results have been quite consistent with me getting BCC. I was told by my law teacher that I was on track to possibly get a B in the real exams if i kept improving the way i was and while I got Bs in RS, they were at the high end of the boundary and our teachers mark all assessments 5% harsher than exam boards tend to so i hope to have been predicted an A, there’s only one person in RS who achieved higher than me consistently so hoping to be number 2 or maybe 3 on the rank order for that.
