Many applicants have contacted us ahead of GCSE results day on Thursday concerned that their results might not reflect their original predicted grades. We will be accepting Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) and all current offer holders who are aged 16-18 and collecting their GCSEs on Thursday will be guaranteed the place they deserve at Southwark College.
The College will accept the evidence provided by schools, colleges or other providers of the Centre Assessed Grades and applicants do not need to wait for the formal letter from the examination body to enrol.
Annette Cast, Principal at Southwark College, has made the guarantee in preparation for enrolment, which begins on Thursday 20 August 2020.
Speaking from the College’s campus in SE1 in London, Annette said: “We know that moving from school to college is an exciting but also anxious time. This year, with exams cancelled and remote learning that anxiety has been felt more than ever.
“We have a limited number of places but at Southwark College, we have a robust process for ensuring that all current offer holders can be placed on the right level course for them. This includes support for anyone who is appealing their grades as well as an assessment and induction that will provide additional support or study sessions for those who might need to improve in English, maths or their vocational subject.”
