RSL Vocational Qualifications Results Day 2023

Congratulations to all of the 15,000+ learners from the 500+ schools and colleges who will be receiving their RSL Vocational Qualifications results this August!

Firstly, we wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate centres on the monumental efforts taken to ensure learners were able to certificate this year and prepare them for the next stage in their journeys.

The quality processes undertaken this year have given us high confidence in the qualifications awarded and we are pleased to confirm that there has been no need to adjust learner grades at the qualification level.

Please download the Frequently Asked Questions below regarding the release of results, validation, and certification of the qualifications. These include how to access the results. Please read these carefully as they will hopefully answer any questions you may have. As an Awarding Organisation, we do not deal directly with learners or their parents/guardians. However, there is a lot of information relevant to learners here, so please feel free to refer to this link should you have queries regarding the results release.

All data has been sent to UCAS so if there are any questions about university applications, please contact UCAS directly.

We hope all learners enjoy a happy results day and wish them the best of luck in their future endeavours.
