Step 3 Email Results

The results you send us must be your GCSE results, as provided to your school by the Awarding Bodies. We will not accept Centre Assessed Grades for entry into the Sixth Form. 

Email an electronic copy (we will not accept any paper copies of results from any students) of your official school results by no later than midday on [GCSE Results Date] to;

Results@kings.peterborough.sch.uk

(The electronic copy could be either a scan or photograph of your results sheet, but if is a photograph, it must be clear and legible)

Your scanned copy of results must include;

• your full legal name
If you used a chosen name to apply to the Sixth Form, your email must make clear what this name was.

• your UCI (Unique Candidate Identifier)
This is a 13 character code – 12 numbers with 1 letter – if your results scan does not include this, please ask the Examinations Officer at your school to provide you with this. Do not delay sending us your results to get this number, but please be aware we will need this from you. If you studied at an Independent School, and have not had a UCI issued, please indicate this in your email.

• your results information, including the level and subject title and result
Please indicate in your email any results that are not full course GCSE’s – for instance, you and your school may know that “BT2” is a “BTEC Level 2 Diploma”, but we may not !

Your email should also confirm the subjects that you applied to study with us.
