Post- Results Services

Services available:

Service 1: Clerical Check

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

  • All of the pages were marked
  • All of the marks were counted
  • The result 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.

Service 2 and 2P: Review of marking and priority review of marking

f 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.

Access to a copy of marked scripts

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.
