Exam Appeals 2021

Your teachers have spent considerable time allocating your final grades and have received training and guidance on how to determine the correct grade for you in all of your subjects. 

Exam boards have also selected samples to check teachers across the country are all marking to the same set criteria. We believe your teachers have made the most reasonable judgement possible on the grades you have been awarded. 

In the event that you believe a grade you have been awarded is incorrect there is an appeals process set out as below. 

Click HERE to download the appeals form (Word), which you will need to complete.

What may happen to your grade during the centre review and appeals process? 

 If you request a centre review or an awarding organisation appeal there are three possible outcomes:

  • Your original grade is lowered, so your final grade will be lower than the original grade you received. 
  • Your original grade is confirmed, so there is no change to your grade.  
  • Your original grade is raised, so your final grade will be higher than the original grade you received.  

Once a finding has been made you cannot withdraw your request for a centre review or appeal. If your grade has been lowered you will not be able to revert back to the original grade you received on results day.  

What will be checked during a centre review?  

You can ask the centre to check whether it made a procedural error, an administrative error, or both. A procedural error means a failure to follow the process set out in the centre policy. An administrative error means an error in recording your grade or submitting your grade to the awarding organisation.  

You must request a centre review before you can request an awarding organisation appeal. This is so the awarding organisation is certain that your grade is as the centre intended.  

What will be checked during an awarding organisation appeal?  

You can ask the awarding organisation to check whether the centre made a procedural or administrative error - or whether the awarding organisation itself made an administrative error. You can also ask the awarding organisation to check whether the academic judgement of the centre was unreasonable, either in the selection of evidence or the determination of your grade.  

When do I need to submit my request? 

You should submit a request for a centre review by: 

  • 12th August: A Level/ Level 3 Vocational   
  • 16th August: GCSE/ Level 2 Vocational  

Following the outcome of the centre review you can request a stage 2 review by: 

  • 19th August: A Level/ Level 3 Vocational   
  • 23rd August: GCSE/ Level 2 Vocational   

How do I submit my request?

Please download the document for Stage one appeals and email this request to

Stage 1 

The first step is to ask the Academy to check whether a mistake has been made. They will then check: 

  • The grade submitted is the one detailed on your results sheet 
  • The evidence attached to your grade correlates with the grade you have been awarded. 
  • If we find that any of these reasons do not reflect the grade you have been awarded, we will contact the exam board to request the grade is revised. Grades could go up, down or stay the same. 
  • if the Academy finds that the grade you have been awarded is correct and reasonable, but you still believe the grade is incorrect, you can move to stage 2 and request that the Academy submits an appeal to the exam board. 

Stage 2 

This stage will involve the exam board reviewing the Academy process and your assessments, so it is important to note that following the outcome of your appeal:

  • Your original grade is lowered, so your final grade will be lower than the original grade you received. 
  • Your original grade is confirmed, so there is no change to your grade.  
  • Your original grade is raised, so your final grade will be higher than the original grade you received.  

This will be your final awarded grade. 

You can appeal to the exam board for the following reasons: 

  • There was an error in the way the Academy followed or applied its procedure for determining your TAG; 
  • The Academy did not make reasonable judgements when deciding which evidence to use to determine your TAG; 
  • The Academy did not make a reasonable judgement about your grade based on the evidence gathered.     

Stage 3 

Finally, if you are not happy with the outcome of appealing to the exam board, you could go to the Ofqual’s Exam Procedure Review Service (EPRS) - The EPRS will consider whether the exam board followed its rules and procedures but not whether you got the correct grade based on the evidence of your work. Even if an error is found your grade may not change.
