Exam Results

East Barnet School examination results can be found on the menu, in year order. On each page you will also find the EBS results compared to national results. Further information can also be found on the DFE Performance Tables website.

Whilst at school, students will take GCSE, ‘AS’ Level and ‘A’ Level examinations, and will receive their final grades in the summer on exam results days (details of these will be advertised closer to the time). In preparation for the exams, students will take mock exams, as well as attend revision sessions and make good use of the EBS Learning Ladders. The Learning Ladders show the progress that students should make and what they need to do to make that progress. There are different Ladders for each subject, and they can be found by clicking here.

The examination and grading process is currently going through a transition period for GCSEs, ‘AS’ Levels and ‘A’ Levels, with different subjects changing at different times over the next few years. A brief overview of the changes can be found below:

GCSE Reforms

The main features of the new GCSEs are:

  1. A new grading scale of 9 to 1 will be used, with 9 being the top grade. This will allow greater differentiation between students and will help distinguish the new GCSEs from previous versions.
  2. Assessment will be mainly by exam, with other types of assessment used only where they are needed to test essential skills.
  3. There will be new, more demanding content, which has been developed by government and the exam boards.
  4. Courses will be designed for two years of study – they will no longer be divided into different modules and students will take all their exams in one period at the end of their course.
  5. Exams can only be split into ‘foundation tier’ and ‘higher tier’ if one exam paper does not give all students the opportunity to show their knowledge and abilities.
  6. Resit opportunities will only be available each November in English Language and Mathematics.

'AS' / 'A' Level Reforms

The main features of the new qualifications are:

  1. Assessment will be mainly by exam, with other types of assessment used only where they are needed to test essential skills.
  2. The content for the new ‘A’ Levels has been reviewed and updated. Universities played a greater role in this for the new qualifications than they did previously.
