Review of Results  

Summer 2020:- The standard post-results services such as Access to Scripts, review of results and reviews of moderation will not apply.

Service 1 (clerical re-check)

This service constitutes a re-check of all clerical procedures, which lead to the issue of a result.  This service may be considered when anomalous results have been issued for one candidate, compared to the rest of the cohort.

The awarding bodies will ensure that all parts of the script have been marked and that the totalling and recording of marks is correct.

Candidates’ grades/uniform mark score (UMS) can go up or down.  The examination boards aim to complete the enquiry within 20 days of receiving the request.

Service 2 (review of marking)

This is a post-results review of the original marking to ensure that the agreed mark scheme has been applied correctly.  It is not a re-marking of the candidate’s script.

The awarding body will have trained its reviewers to conduct reviews of marking accurately and consistently.  Reviewers will not re-mark the script.

This service will include a clerical re-check detailed in Service 1 and a review of marking as described above.

Candidates’ grades/uniform mark score (UMS) can go up or down.  The examination boards aim to complete the enquiry within 30 days of acknowledging the request.

Priority Service 2 (review of marking)

This is a priority review of marking, the enquiry must relate to a GCE and where a candidate’s place in further/higher education depends on the outcome.

All applications not meeting the above criteria will be treated as normal Service 2 requests.

Candidates’ grades/uniform mark score (UMS) can go up or down.  The examination boards aim to complete the enquiry within 18 days of receiving the request.

Access to Scripts (ATS)

Components excluded from this ATS service have a report service.  Components may be excluded due to their ephemeral nature or due to other special characteristics.

Coursework

Coursework, practical’s and NEAs cannot be reviewed. 

Refunds

Refunds will only be issued if a re-mark leads to the change of an overall subject grade, not the unit.

Replacement Certificates 

Many employers & universities are insisting on seeing actual certificates for your qualifications.

If you have lost your certificates, you will need to complete an application form for each exam board and pay them directly. Each form will outline the cost involved but it is usually around £50 per certificate.

An alternative is to request a certified statement of results, but employers and/or universities may not be willing to accept them, so it is advisable to check first.

To apply for a replacement certificate or certified statement of results, simply visit the below web pages, depending on which exam board the subject was with, and follow their instructions for requesting replacement certificates.
