How are grades reported on results?
Syllabus grades for all examination types are reported on the Statements of Results as an upper case letter followed by the corresponding lower case letter in brackets, e.g. B(b). This format is used as a security feature to prevent grades being altered by hand.
What does NO RESULT mean?
'NO RESULT' or 'X' means one of the following:
- We were notified that the candidate was absent or withdrawn from one or more components of the exam and is therefore not eligible for the award of a grade.
- We were not notified that the candidate was absent or withdrawn and there is no record of their mark in one or more components of the exam and is therefore not eligible for the award of a grade.
- We disqualified the candidate. Where this is the case we will have sent a separate communication to the school explaining the reasons for the disqualification.
What does PENDING mean?
For each qualification 'PENDING' indicates that a result cannot be issued at present but will follow in due course.
What does UNGRADED mean?
'UNGRADED' indicates that the student has failed to reach the standard required for a pass. 'UNGRADED' will be reported on the Statement of Results but not on the final certificate.
What does TO BE ISSUED mean?
For some Cambridge IGCSE syllabuses 'TO BE ISSUED' indicates that the result will be awarded in the November series.
How are Group award results reported?
The Cambridge AICE Diploma group award result will be reported on International A Level Statements of Results for students who satisfy the AICE Diploma award rules. The AICE Diploma group award is reported on a three point scale of grades: Distinction, Merit and Pass.
The Cambridge ICE group award result will be reported on IGCSE Statements of Results for students who satisfy the ICE award rules. The ICE group award is reported on a three point scale of grades: Distinction, Merit and Pass.
