Post-Results Services

Services available:

Clerical check (service 1)

A clerical check of a marked paper will make sure that:

  • All of the pages were marked
  • All of the marks were counted
  • The results matches the marks on the paper.

Your grade can go down as well as up.

You can request these services for individual units or components.

You can only request a clerical check once for each paper.

Review of marking (service 2) and priority review of marking (service 2P)

If you request a review or priority review of marking:

  • It includes a clerical check
  • A second examiner will review the paper/recording
    again to identify genuine marking errors or unreasonable marking.

Your grade can go down as well as up.

You can request these services for individual units or components.

You can request a copy of the reviewed paper for an additional fee.

A review is the standard speed service for any student. A priority review is a quicker service for students whose place at a university or other higher educational institution depends on the outcome.

Priority copy of a marked paper (ATSP)

This is a photocopy of the marked exam paper that you can use to decide whether to request a review of marking or a clerical check.

Don’t do this if your university place is pending, go straight to a priority review of marking instead.

Priority copies aren’t available for some externally assessed units, but you can request the candidate record form or marking grid instead.

Where available, a copy of the mark scheme will also be provided.

This service is not currently available for AQA or CIE GCSE subjects.

How to request post-results services

  • Make the required payment.
  • Once the completed form and payment have been received we will submit your request(s) to the appropriate examining board(s) and will send an email to your school email account confirming this.
  • The outcome of any reviews of marking will be communicated to you through your school email account (which will remain active until October 31st) once they have been received. Similarly, you will be advised by email when copies of any exam scripts you have requested become available and these can be collected from Reception.

Please note that we cannot accept requests for post-results services from anybody other than the candidate concerned and marking review outcomes and scripts cannot be issued to anybody else without the candidate’s prior consent (which must be made from the candidate's school email account).
