Key Stage 5 and Key Stage 4 Results Collection - Summer 2021

To be completed by:


Time: - | Venue:


We are asking schools to participate voluntarily in a local collection of provisional A Level and GCSE results for 2021.

On 6 January 2021, the government confirmed that in summer 2021, students taking GCSE, AS and A levels regulated by Ofqual, should be awarded grades based on an assessment by their teachers

As in 2020, the DfE will not publish institution level data based on 2021 AS levels, A levels, other regulated general qualifications, or vocational and technical qualifications. This data will not be available for others, such as Ofsted, Regional Schools Commissioners (RSCs) or local authorities, to use to hold schools and colleges to account.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): school and college accountability 2020 to 2021 - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

Please note that we will be following the methodology used in the 2019 DfE performance tables, therefore we will be collecting first entry only.

Access to the online forms this year is via the Results Collection Dashboard on BSO. Users require a BSO login to be able to complete the results forms. Guidance is available on how to obtain a login if you don’t already have one. Once logged in, the results collection dashboard can be found under the ‘Utilities’ section in the centre of the screen:

We would like you to return your data between 9.30 and 10.30am on Tuesday 10th August 2021 for KS5 and Thursday 12th August 2021 for KS4.This submission window is in line with the June 2021 regulations published by the JCQ, including when a school (centre) can release results data to the Local Authority.

When returning KS4 results please ensure that you use the 2019 point scores for unreformed GCSEs (see table below – ‘Secondary Accountability Measures’ February 2020).

Point scores for other qualifications can be found in Annex A of the Progress 8 and Attainment 8 guidance via the Key Stage 4 link at the bottom of this article.
