Exam results

Our students are celebrating an excellent set of GCSE grades again this year.

Vickey Poulter Principal said ‘I am so proud of this year 11 cohort.  It has been a very challenging year for them and they have had to show great resilience. They should be really pleased with their achievements throughout the last five years, culminating in the results they have received. I wish them every success in the future, they are a superbly talented group of young people.”

As announced on Monday, 17th August by OFQUAL, the GCSE results were based on the Centre Assessed Grades (CAG) that were sent by the college to the exam boards. Vocational results have taken moderated coursework and exams previously taken into account in the award given by the exam board.   

If you have any questions about the grades allocated please e-mail these to office@bassingbournvc.org.   Please do not contact individual teachers as we wish to deal with questions concerning exams centrally.

In addition OFQUAL have issued up to date guidance that can be found on their website; 


OFQUAL’s current position is that there is no right of appeal for students other than: 

  • Data error – where the centre made a genuine data error, for example confusing the grades of two students with similar names. 
  • Bias and discrimination – where the student has evidence that the centre or a teacher showed bias or discrimination. 

Students should check the College information which was attached to their results which confirms how to enrol at their chosen college or this can be downloaded here. If students have any questions or need additional guidance about their college placement they should contact Miss Hields by e-mail rhields@bassingbournvc.org to arrange an appointment. 

We also need to keep a record of where students go for education or employment after leaving Bassingbourn Village College, so we have asked all students to complete a questionnaire, which should be completed as soon as possible.
