This page gives you key dates when exam results are available and how to receive and collect them.
A-level & GCSE Results Days
2021 A-level Results Day - Tuesday 10th August 2021. Collect from 9am.
2021 GCSE Results Day - Thursday 12th August 2021. Collect from 9am.
Results cannot be released before these dates. Please note the Exams Department cannot give A-level or GCSE results out over the phone.
Students who do not attend results days to collect their results will have their results slip posted out to their home address by 3pm. Please make sure the college has your up to date address!
There is no single formal results day for on-demand or vocational course students. Usually your tutor will contact you directly with your results. If you have not received your results as expected from an on-demand or vocational exam, please contact your tutor.
Results are only available to collect from the Willerby Grove, Peterlee Campus.
Students must bring photographic ID to collect results. This could be your East Durham student ID badge, a driving licence or passport. Students who do not bring photographic ID may not be able to collect their results.
Collecting Results On Behalf Of Someone Else
Parents/guardians or friends can collect results on behalf of a student only by following this procedure:
- The student must give written permission that explicitly names the person who will collect their results. This can be done by the student emailing firstname.lastname@example.org from their student email address or by giving the Exams Department a signed letter.
- The person collecting results must have photographic ID of themselves.
- If possible, the person collecting results should bring the student’s East Durham College ID badge with them.
