Summer 2021 Qualification Results
Teacher Assessed Grades appeals process
As you will be aware, following the Government’s announcement in January 2021 that qualification examinations and assessments would not go ahead as planned, outcomes for the majority of qualifications have been determined by teachers. These Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) have been determined based on a range of evidence and in strict accordance with the guidance and requirements set out by Ofqual (the regulator for qualifications) and the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ). Richmond upon Thames College has complied with all guidance in full and our Centre Policies for awarding and quality assuring TAGs have been formally approved by JCQ and the relevant awarding organisations (also known as exam boards).
Given the rigorous process we have used in order to determine and quality assure your Teacher Assessed Grades, we are confident that the grade you receive in August will be an accurate and fair judgement of your performance. If, however, you have reason to believe that your grade is incorrect, you have the right to appeal. Please see below the links to the guidance for the appeals process, which you should read carefully and follow closely should you wish to submit an appeal. There are very clear conditions and procedures for appeal which have been set out by JCQ and apply across all schools and colleges in the country, and only appeals that follow the established procedures can be considered. There is also a link below to the RuTC Centre Policy for GCSE and A level TAGs, which has been formally approved by JCQ. For vocational and technical qualifications, each awarding organisation has its own requirements relating to centre policies, with which, again, we have complied in full.
