Collecting AS level results

All the information we had before they broke up was that results must be collected in person by the student, if not collected they will go into their pigeon hole for collection in September. In exceptional circumstances the student could authorise someone else to collect but a letter of authority needed to be with the exams office before they broke up.

I've stupidly booked tickets that mean DS can't be there for the allotted AS slot (11am-12pm). All my fault, I got the date muddled.

However, he could be there at 9am when they will be giving out A level results (9am-11am).

He could just wait until he's back in school, but he has re-enrollment for sixth form on 31 Aug and TBH, it's going to borderline which subjects he can continue with. I'd like to be able to have a conversation with him and he'd like to know his results ahead of his re-admission meeting.

Obviously, there's no-one in school ATM to talk to or respond to an email.

If he goes in at 9am what are his chances of getting his results (I don;t know the process) and how cross are they likely to be?

If we forfeit the tickets it's £140 so I'd prefer not to.

WWYD?

Phone school next week to see how amenable they will be to him turning up early. Or, they may have some type of alternative that you can arrange (such as sending in a SAE or getting someone else authorised by your DS to collect his results on his behalf).

FWIW at DS's school, it seems that A Level and AS Level results can be picked up on the same day in the same time frame. And his school's website, I'm sure, gives advice on the various ways of getting external exam results...

Good luck to your DS, and hoping you don't have to forfeit your tickets.

I'm never sure quite when results arrive at school, but obviously there will be staff there on Wednesday or early Thursday - just call and explain. The timing thing is more so they have the right envelopes out, I would think? If they are expecting him, they can have his results ready.

dd did an AS early & wasn't sure when to collect the result so she just turned up with the A level people. School were a bit surprised & has to print the results slip off for her but it wasn't a problem.

Don't you get them by text, email and post?
