Results

Welcome to the College results page where we will share information with you on how your results and/or certificates will be released to you. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the traditional results collection will not be possible for the majority of our students. Our priority remains to keep you and our staff safe, and in order to do this, there are limits on which results can be collected from campus.

This page will be regularly updated with the most up to date information on how you can access your results.

Please check back regularly and follow our social media where we will update when new information is posted here.

It is essential that you adhere to the guidance on this page and do not turn up on campus.


The following results and certificates (where received) will be issued as follows:

Thursday 13 August 2020

  • All Pearson Level 3 certificates will be posted first class when received.
  • If you have applied to University via UCAS, Pearson automatically inform UCAS of your results from 8AM on this day.
  • If you have applied to a Higher Education course at NRC or another FE College in NI, and need a copy of your results on 13th August, please email the exams office ASAP to arrange this.

Thursday 20 August 2020

Update

The College was notified at 4.30pm on Wednesday 19 August that all Pearson BTEC Level 1 & 2 results are being withheld.

All schools and colleges have been asked not to issue results to students as Pearson have made an announcement that they will be reviewed and if required regraded.

Following Pearson’s announcement that they are withholding the issuing of grades, the College would like to assure applicants that they will not be disadvantaged by this delay. Where we have made a conditional offer for a place on a course we will honour it subject to the conditions being met. If you have already applied for a course we will ensure that a place is reserved for you, subject to your revised grades meeting the entrance requirements.

If you have any queries please email admissions@nrc.ac.uk.

Centre Assessment Grades Appeals

If you are unhappy with a “Centre Assessment Grade” (CAG) result, you should speak to the College prior to contacting an Awarding Organisation - it’s important that you understand on what basis you can and can’t appeal your results when deciding your next steps.

Where permitted by an Awarding Organisation, CAGs were decided by the College for assessments due to take place between 20th March and 31st July 2020. If you wish to appeal a CAG please note:

  • you cannot appeal your grade because you don’t agree with the Centre Assessment Grade or rank order position submitted by the College i.e. you cannot appeal your lecturers’ professional judgements;
  • you can ask the College to check whether it made an error when submitting your Centre Assessment Grade or your position in the rank order i.e. a procedural irregularity;
  • you cannot contact an Awarding Organisation directly, but the College can submit an appeal on your behalf if it thinks an error has been made;
  • you must contact the College to lodge your appeal within 5 working days of receiving your result and before 4th September 2020.

More information about appealing a Centre Assessment Grade is detailed within our Complaints and Appeals Process and also individual awarding organisation websites. The JCQ Guidance and Ofqual Guidance for Students may also be useful to you.

If you wish to appeal a non-CAG result, please refer to the College’s ‘Student Assessment Appeals Policy’
