If they do not provide identification results will not be released.
Unless we have the appropriate completed form, results will not be emailed or handed to another person.
Results will not be provided over the telephone under any circumstances.
Senior members of staff will be available on each results publication day, from 9.30 until 3.30, if you wish to discuss your results.
Post Results Services
All Examination boards provide a number of Post Results Services which are available to students following the publication of results. In all cases a “Post Results Services” form (available only from the Exams Office) must be completed and returned to the Exams Office before the deadlines indicated on the form.
Deadlines are set by the Exam Boards and they will not be extended under any circumstances.
Once completed please DO NOT return the form to your subject teacher but return it directly to the Exams Office. Forms not handed in directly to the Exams Office may miss the deadlines.
The services available are:
Enquiries About Results
- Clerical re-check
- Priority Re-mark (available for A2 students were a University or Higher Education place is dependent on the result). For 2016 Edexcel have introduced this service for GCSE qualifications too, but AQA, OCR and WJEC have not. This service is only available for a very short period of time after the publication of results.
- Re-moderation of coursework. This can only be requested after discussions with teaching staff and is subject to restrictions.
There are three potential outcomes to a re-mark request:
The original mark/grade is confirmed as that published on results day
The original mark/grade is increased
The original mark/grade is lowered
If the mark/grade is lowered then you cannot ask for the original mark/grade to be re-instated.
Please be aware that this may affect your place at University or College.
In certain circumstances, where the mark/grade has been amended, you may be eligible for a refund.
Access to Scripts
Candidates have the right to instruct the centre not to request copies of their scripts if they don’t want the centre to do so.
- Priority Copy. Available for a very short period after publication of results
The cost of each service varies between exam boards. A sheet detailing the cost of each service will be included with your results.
Payment must be made before any request is submitted to the exam boards. The receipt must be attached to the Post Results Services form.
Payment can only be made via the secure online payment system used by the school. Cash and cheques will not be accepted.
The appeals process is available to candidates who remain dissatisfied after receiving the outcome of an enquiry about results.
Appeals can only be submitted by the Head of Centre or a private candidate and must be made in writing within 14 calendar days of the notification of the outcome. This means the date at which the school was notified of the outcome. The appeal must clearly state the grounds for appeal and will not normally result in a second re-mark but must refer to the awarding body’s failure to follow procedure.
It is essential therefore that any appeal is dealt with as a matter of urgency and be supported by school staff.
