Results slips

Find out what you need to know about the results slips that we give to students on results days.

What is a results slip?

On results day, we give students a results slip. This is also known as a Candidate Statement of Provisional Results (CSoPR).

Students will get a separate CSoPR for each qualification type (eg GCSE or A-level).

You can view results slips, for the results that we've issued, on 

Symbols on results slips

Some of the symbols that you might see on results slips are:

  • No result (X) – a result has not been issued because the student was absent for all parts of the exam, or there has been a decision not to issue a result for another reason.
  • Pending (Q) – a result has not been issued as the marks for one or more components of the exam are not available.
  • Partial absence (#) – the student was absent from one or more exams, but a grade can still be issued based on the exams taken.

This separate grade will appear on a certificate, but won’t contribute to a student’s 9–1 grade.
