Result & Certificate Information


30 April 2021

HSDC has submitted the final versions of the Teacher Assessed Grades policies to awarding bodies today.

These outline how students will be awarded grades in place of exams in Summer 2021. We have closely followed the guidance supplied by Joint Council for Qualifications (a membership organisation representing the main awarding bodies such as AQA, OCR, Pearson, WJEC etc.).

We are keen for parents and students to make themselves familiar with these policies which demonstrates how we will ensure fair and valid Teacher Assessed Grades in Summer 2021.

Mike Gaston (Principal & CEO) explains Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) in the following video.

Appeals Summer 2021

In line with JCQ regulations, the only grounds for appeal are:

  • Administrative error by the centre e.g. the wrong grade/mark was recorded against an item of evidence
  • Procedural error by the centre e.g. a reasonable adjustment/access arrangement was not provided for an eligible student

Stage 1 is a centre review.
Stage 2 is an awarding body review.

Please read the letters in the download section for deadlines and application forms. Any forms received after the deadline will not be processed.

Please return the completed forms to the relevant exams office.

Certificate Collection Dates

Full time students can collect their certificates from the following dates –

  • A Level and Vocational Level 3 to Level 5 from 13 December 2021
  • GCSE and Vocational Entry Level to Level 2 from 6 December 2021

You must have photo ID when collecting certificates. If you are unable to collect your certificate, you can complete the Permission Slip for Certificates form and your representative will need to bring this along with their own photo ID.

Certificates not collected by mid-December 2022 with be destroyed in line with awarding body regulations. You will then have to contact the relevant awarding body/bodies directly and pay for a replacement, approximately £45 each.

Students attending a part time course will have their certificates sent to them during the above weeks. Those attending short or distance learning courses will be sent their certificates once received from the awarding body. The certificates will be sent to your home address held on the College system; it is your responsibility to ensure your address held on file is correct when your course has finished.

On receipt of your certificate you must check your legal name is shown and it is spelt correctly and your date of birth is correct. If there are any errors you must return the certificate and include a letter stating the correct spelling along with a photocopy of one of the following:

  • Birth certificate
  • Deed poll change
  • Passport
  • Driving licence

This must be done within three months of receipt of your certificate or you may be charged for a replacement.


Resit forms are available below or from the Exams offices. Payments can be made in reception at both Havant and South Downs campuses and at the Finance office at Alton Campus. You can also email your form to the relevant exams office and you will be contacted for payment.

Forms and payment must be made by the deadlines stated on the form or you may be charged a late fee by the examination board.
