Centres must adhere to the JCQ instructions in relation to the release of results:

The results are issued on the strict understanding that the results files and their contents remain entirely confidential to the head of centre, examinations office staff and senior members of teaching staff within the centre, or the consortium, or Multi Academy Trust that, in the opinion of the head of centre, need to be made aware of the information.

The results, or information derived from results, must not be divulged to or discussed with:

  • other teachers;
  • candidates or parents;
  • educational institutions and Local Authorities;
  • the media;
  • any other persons.

Additionally the results, or information derived from results, must not be divulged or discussed on social media such as Facebook or Twitter.

Centres must not release results data to Local Authorities until after 9.30am on the appropriate date for the publication of results.

Similarly, centres must not issue press releases or statements to the media under any circumstances until after 9.30am on the appropriate date for the publication of results.
