The awarding bodies offer the following post results services:
Review of original marking
Review of original moderation
Access to scripts
These services are only available via the school – awarding bodies never enter into negotiation with students or parents. The Joint Council for Qualifications will issue deadlines for the post results services later in the year.
This is a re-check of all clerical procedures leading to the issue of a result. It
includes checks that all parts of the script have been marked, the marks have been correctly totalled and recorded, any adjustments have been correctly applied, grade thresholds have been correctly applied, special consideration where applicable has been correctly applied.
This includes a clerical re-check as above and also a review of the marks
awarded by the original marker to ensure that the mark scheme has been
applied correctly. This service is available for externally assessed components.
If the enquiry is about a level 3 qualification (i.e. an A level result) AND a
candidate’s higher education place depends on the outcome, the enquiry will be prioritised. The deadline for the priority service is extremely tight.
This service is only available if the school’s marks have been amended by the awarding body’s moderator. The original moderation is reviewed to ensure that the assessment criteria have been correctly applied. The service is only available for the whole of the original moderation sample and is not available for the work of an individual candidate.
For clerical checks and post-results reviews of marking the candidate’s consent is required because the mark might go up, remain the same or go down and the candidate’s grade could be affected.
Level 3 (A level) candidates will be able to request access to a photocopy of
their scripts prior to deciding whether to lodge an enquiry about results,
unless the enquiry is to be prioritised; this option is not available to level 1 or 2 candidates. Copies of scripts which have been subject to an enquiry may be requested along with the outcome of the enquiry. Original scripts may also be requested but will not be provided until after the enquiry has been completed. If teachers wish to use scripts for teaching and learning purposes they will ask the candidate for written permission; candidates may request that their scripts be made anonymous.
All post-results enquiries carry a fee; fees are set by the awarding bodies. If
grades are amended as a results of an enquiry the fee will not be charged.
