4. What are the next steps for students continuing at The Sheffield College?

If you are staying with us and you have the grades you need, please attend your enrolment appointment on campus where we will confirm your place with us. You’ll need to bring proof of results and ID. 

If you haven’t got the grades you were expecting, please don’t worry. Please do still attend your enrolment appointment and we'll find you an appropriate study programme based on the grades you have achieved.

For more information, please visit Enrolment at The Sheffield College 2022/2023.


5. Can students appeal their grades?

Students will have the right to appeal their grade if they think their grade is wrong. Please be aware that grades can go up, down or stay the same as the result of an appeal.

Your first step should be to speak to the college, as soon as possible after receiving your results, to get feedback and advice.

The appeals process, including deadlines, will be explained and included in the information that tells you your results.

In the event, that the exam board finds a grade is not reasonable, they will determine the alternative grade and inform the college.

In cases of disagreement between The Sheffield College and the exam board, or if the student disagrees with the centre or the exam board, the case can be referred to Ofqual’s Exams Procedure Review Service (EPRS).

The exam board’s decision on the grade following appeal will stand unless the EPRS finds that the exam board has made a procedural error.

Please note the awarding body may charge a fee to process an appeal. Please visit the relevant awarding bodies' websites for specific details.

If you do want to find out more, please discuss this with your tutors as soon as possible after receiving your results or email
