Collecting Your Results

GCSE Results Day is fast approaching, and in line with government guidelines to safeguard you and our staff, things will work a little differently this year. 

You should have received an email regarding details for collecting your GCSE results. If you have not received an email, please speak to our Support Services Team by calling 01843 605062 or emailing broadstairs@eastkent.ac.uk 

To ensure everyone's safety, please pay attention to the following guidance prior to arriving on site: 

  • You must enter the site through the pedestrian gate and go straight to the Welcome car park
  • In the car park you will see five desks, each of which will distribute specific surnames. Please look for the right desk to approach.
  • You must bring your student ID or other photo ID with you to collect these results. If you have no ID, you will not be able to collect your results.
  • If there is a queue, then please ensure you stay at least 1m apart from the other people in the queue, adhering to social distancing.
  • Once you have collected your result you must leave campus immediately. There will be advice within your letter of support if you did not get the results you were hoping for.
  • Please do not bring any friends or family with you on site. You must only attend the site on your own.
  • Please do not attend site if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or live with someone who has them or if you’ve had symptoms in the last 7 days.

If you are unable to come in to collect your results, they will posted out to you and should arrive at the address you have registered with us within a few days. Unfortunately, we are unable to give any results out over the phone.

If you would like to send someone else to pick up your results you will need to email our Support Services team and request permission. Your nominated person must bring ID with them. 

Your certificate will arrive at your College during the autumn term and you will receive communication detailing when it is suitable for you to come in to collect it. Please note that results for all other courses will be emailed to your student account.

Other exam results

All other qualification results will be emailed to you throughout August. Please check your student email account. If you are having any issues accessing your account, please email broadstairs@eastkent.ac.uk 

When can I retake my GCSEs?

There will be an opportunity for those who aren’t happy with their grade to re-sit in November 2020 and you can speak to your tutor about this.

Didn’t get the grades you needed?

Don’t panic! If you have been given GCSE grade requirements you need to meet in order to study a course, then contact the college/university/apprenticeship provider to find out if they will still accept you. They may still allow you to join the course or be able to offer an alternative. If you can’t get onto the course you wanted, all is not lost. Our Career Advisers can book a one-to-one telephone appointment with you to discuss your career goals and give you support in finding a different route to your dream job. 

Book a call back

Need support?

Getting your GCSEs is an exciting time, but it can also be a time of anxiety. If you feel worried, upset or overwhelmed, it is best to speak to someone. This can be a family member, a friend or even your tutors. When you collect your results you will be given a letter of support which will contain details of other organisations you can speak to. Just remember, these are just results and there is plenty of opportunity to improve on them and still reach your potential. 

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you the best of luck with your plans, be that returning to College, university or seeking employment.
