- grades will be determined by a student’s performance in an exam for all subjects, except for art and design qualifications
- A level exams will be held in October, while GCSE exams will take place in November and December

GCSE Maths and English November Re-sits
Please read carefully to see which applies to your circumstances:
Students who were at Long Road last year (2021 summer exam series) and were awarded TAG grades:
You can sit a November exam. You will sit the exam board you studied at Long Road and have the exam concessions (for example 25% extra time) that we have already approved with the exam board for you. If you are enrolled at Long Road in a Maths or English class as part of your Level 3 Study Programme (because you have not yet achieved Grade 4) you must continue to attend that class until the RESULTS come out in January. If you achieve a Grade 4, we will check with you that you do not wish to continue attending.
Students not at Long Road last year (2021 summer exam series) who were awarded TAGS by a secondary school and are:
- Enrolled on Maths or English GCSE in addition to the Level 3 Study Programme or part of your Level 2 Study Programme. You can take a November exam. It will be the Edexcel exam board, which you may not have studied at school. Teachers will be teaching exam technique up to the November exam. We can apply for any exam concessions (for example extra time) only if we have the Form 8 from your school, and the timeline for applying to the exam board is very tight, we cannot guarantee that you will get those concessions if we do not have the required evidence in time. You must continue to attend your enrolled classes until the RESULTS come out in January. If you achieve a Grade 4, we will check with you that you do not wish to continue attending.
- Not enrolled on a Maths or English GCSE course (you already have Grade 4 or above) and you want to improve your grade. As above, we are only offering the Edexcel exam board. We can apply for exam concessions (for example extra time) only if we have the Form 8 from your school, and the timeline for applying to the exam board is very tight. We cannot guarantee that you will get those concessions if we do not have the required evidence in time. You would be advised to contact your previous school if you want to sit your original exam board.
- We are not accepting entries from Private Candidates not enrolled at the college
- We are asking for a returnable £10 deposit for each entry to cover costs if you do not turn up for the exams. If you attend, you will be refunded, whatever the result.
