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!

The embargo on all RSL Awards results is lifted on the 10th August. We expect that centres will release results for Level 2 and 3 in line with other qualifications.

Key Dates:


  • Tuesday 10th August – Level 3 Results
  • Thursday 12th August – Level 2 Results

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.

This year saw far fewer Teacher Assessed Grades than expected and far more learner evidence available for moderation. This is a strong indicator of the hard work centres and learners have put in during what has been two very difficult academic years.

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.
