Students in England were awarded Teacher-Assessed Grades (TAGs) or centre calculated grades in 2021 following the cancellation of the full exams but were also given the option to sit their exams in the autumn.
If you choose to sit any of your exams, your results will be made available to you by your school or college on 16 December 2021.
Sitting the Exam - you may be able to take the exam in the new academic year either when school/college reopens in the Autumn or in 2022.
For University Applications - If applying to university and you don't have the grades you need to attend your chosen university, talk to you first choice university first and you may also wish to consider the Clearing process (see separate section below).

Applying through Clearing Clearing is how uni's and colleges fill any places they still have on their courses.
