If you are a GCSE Student at South Thames College you will be able to access your results on ProPortal. Instructions on how to do this can be found in the Exams section of Moodle. If you have any queries relating to receipt of your results please respond to the email sent to you by the College.
The majority of our BTEC students at South Thames College do not fall into the category of students who receive results on the same days as GCSEs. If you are a BTEC student who is expecting their results this summer, your certificate will be sent to you in the post in due course. The Awarding body is experiencing delays in issuing BTEC certificates so please bear with us; we will dispatch them to you as soon as they arrive.
Please do not visit the college site, as we are not open for exam/results queries.
A message from Pearson: Delay in issuing BTEC L1 and L2 results
Following Ofqual’s announcement that A Level and GCSE students are to receive Centre Assessment Grades, we have reviewed the impact on BTEC students and taken on board feedback from teachers, schools and colleges. Following our review and your feedback we have decided to apply Ofqual’s principles for students receiving BTECs this summer.
This means we will now be regrading all the following BTECs - BTEC Level 3 Nationals (2010 QCF and 2016 RQF), BTEC Level 1/2 Tech Awards, BTEC Level 2 Technicals and BTEC Level 1/2 Firsts.
BTEC qualification results have been generally consistent with teacher and learner expectations, but we have become concerned about unfairness in relation to what are now significantly higher outcomes for GCSE and A Levels.
Although we generally accepted Centre Assessment Grades for internal (i.e. coursework) units, we subsequently calculated the grades for the examined units using historical performance data with a view of maintaining overall outcomes over time. Our review will remove these calculated grades and apply consistency across teacher assessed internal grades and examined grades that students were unable to sit.
We will work urgently with you to reissue these grades and will update you as soon as we possibly can. We want to reassure students that no grades will go down as part of this review.
We appreciate this will cause additional uncertainty for students and we are sorry about this. Our priority is to ensure fair outcomes for BTEC students in relation to A Levels and GCSEs and that no BTEC student is disadvantaged.
Therefore, we ask schools and colleges not to issue any BTEC L1 and L2 results as these will be reviewed and where appropriate, regraded.
We will share more information as soon as we can. Please contact us if you have any questions. We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.
