What does U / Q / X Grade mean?

Q

means query. There may be circumstances when your results are incomplete because of a query over some or all of your results. If this is the case, a Q will be reported on your provisional statement of Results until the query is investigated and resolved. Once a query is resolved, you will be issued with an updated result.

X

means incomplete results. This could be because requirements of the specification have not been met. Please contact your centre for more details. An X in CoPE means that you were absent.

U

means ungraded. This means you have not reached the minimum standard required to achieve a grade in the qualification or have zero marks or were absent. This result will not be recorded on your certificate.

On a GCE statement, what is the letter in brackets beside the uniform marks?

This is the notional grade achieved in the unit.

The notional grade is an indication of how you have performed on an individual unit and not the overall grade awarded in the qualification.

Further details of the relationship between uniform marks and notional grades are available on www.ccea.org.uk

It is essential that your Examinations Officer contacts us as soon as possible before the certificates are printed. After your certificate is printed it will not be possible to change the name on it.
