As you will be already aware, the summer exam schedule for students did not take place this year, and the College has been working closely with awarding bodies and government to understand how exam results and course grades will be awarded this year and when.
We understand that these unprecedented times are unsettling, and we want to keep you informed.
How and when can you get your results?
This year, you will get your results online via the E-ILP, (Electronic Individual Learning Plan) which you can access below. It is also available through the Nottingham College student mobile app, available on the Apple App Store for iOS and Google Play for Android devices.

Other exam results
Those following an adapted assessment will have a different timeline, dependent on students’ completion and verification dates.
Any remaining results are being followed up by our exams and curriculum teams, please speak to your tutor for clarification in the first instance. Alternatively, please complete the exam result enquiry form, found on the college website, link below
Arrangements on results days
The College will not be open to students to collect results.
Instead all students are asked to log into their E-ILP to access their results. If you are unable to access your E-ILP please make contact with your tutor and we can arrange for your results to be issued to you another way. Instructions on how to access your E-ILP are available above.
Results and exam grading information
The College submits all grades to the relevant exam boards. These grades are what our teachers have assessed as the outcome you would have achieved, had you sat your exam(s).
Our teachers have used coursework, mock exam results, assessments and general records of performance throughout the course to award a grade. Exam boards then check these submitted grades against a model designed by regulators, to ensure consistency and fairness.
Nottingham College has submitted provisional (centre assessment) grade(s)
to the relevant awarding body in accordance with the Ofqual guidance on Awarding qualifications in summer 2021 and in line with the awarding body instructions.
Students can find more information related to assessments and appeals from GOV.UK.
To achieve fairness nationally, awarding bodies are putting these grades through a standardisation process to ensure grading standards are consistent across all colleges, schools and assessment centres.
On your statements of results (results slips) and certificates, final grades will be reported in the same way as in previous years.
At results time, Ofqual will be providing information for students that sets out how grades were calculated this year and the options available if you believe your result was not properly produced, including access to appeal. The National Careers Service Exam Results Helpline (Call 0800 100 900 or Text your name and the word ADVICE to 07766 413219) offers advice each year for students who have not received the results they had hoped for.
Ofqual will also make a helpline available to students and their parents or carers to talk about the appeals process and any other questions they may have about their results this summer.
Awarding bodies will also likely provide information for students about results. We will be adding any further guidance from Awarding bodies to this page so please check back here if you have any further queries.
If you have a concern about a grade you have been awarded, you can ask us to:
- Check whether an error was made when submitting your centre assessment to the awarding body
- Raise a complaint if you feel you have evidence of bias or that you were discriminated against; you could also pass such evidence on to the awarding body who could investigate for potential malpractice
- Seek any information the awarding body holds in relation to how your final grade was calculated
- Provide information about the opportunity to take an exam in the autumn series or in summer 2022
We have a dedicated page around appeals for teacher assessed grades within our Coronavirus section of our website.
If you are interested in resitting an exam, we offer a private exam entry service for a range of exams including GCSE, A Level, Functional Skills, AAT and more. For more information on this service and how to enquire about being entered for a resit, please see our private exam entry service page.
We wish all our students the very best in the run up to exam results.
