Lost Examination Certificates

Dixons City Academy do not have duplicates of your exam certificates and we only keep them for one year after you have taken your exams. The only organisations that can replace them are the exam boards that awarded them. Most exam boards will charge you for their replacement.

You will need to find out the exam board who gave you your certificate. To do this you may need to contact Dixons and we will be able to give you this information. Make sure you know which year you sat the exam, as the exam boards used can change from year to year.

Once you know the exam board(s) you can apply for a duplicate certificate or a statement of results. To do this you must contact the appropriate board. Click on the links below which will take you to the relevant web page:

Information for Ex Dixons City Students intending to resit examinations

Dixons schools have now moved to a cashless system and this will include payments for resits. Ex-students will still be able to put in requests to resit but all payments would need to be made via the Parent Pay system. Initially students will need to complete a request form for which there will be an internal deadline. Students will need to meet this deadline to ensure that the Exam Office has enough time to set up the Parent Pay system, give students enough time to complete the payment, time to process the entry, send confirmation reports and meet the exam board deadline.

Information for student wanting to request remark of exam papers and access to scripts

Dixons schools have now moved to a cashless system and this will include any payments for reviews of marking and access to scripts. Students will still be able to put in their requests for these services but all payments would need to be made via the Parent Pay system. Initially students should speak to the examination officer about their request, they will be required to fill in a consent form and then the payment item will appear on Parent Pay. Students should make themselves aware of the deadlines for remarks and access to scripts; giving enough time for the payment to be logged, payment made and request submitted to the exam board.

Latest Information from Ofqual about remarks an enquiry about a result should be a review of marking, not a ‘re-mark’

Ofqual’s research has shown that schools usually ask exam boards to check marks that are just below a boundary, so a small change in a mark can lead to a grade change, and potentially advantage students whose marks were reviewed over those that weren’t. By ensuring that marks are reviewed, only those marks that are the result of a genuine marking error not a difference in judgement will be changed, which will be fairer to all candidates.

Every year the school receives a large number of enquiries from parents/students asking if we accept external candidates for exams. Dixons City Academy does not take any external candidates but will consider students who have attended the school in the past. This statement is not a declaration that all external students will be accepted; it may depend on whether we can accommodate the examinations that are requested. AQA publishes a list on their website of the all the schools in this area that in principal accept external candidates.

Some very brave students @dixonsca agreed to open their results while being filmed by Look North. A few quiet tears from me and @JoOrton90 as we watched another great year group get ready to fly the nest and move on to their next chapter. Congratulations to the Class of 2019. https://t.co/J68EJLks5t
