Post Results Services

If you have an enquiry or are concerned about your results, you can request for one or more of the post results services provided by the exam boards. There are currently two main services provided: Review of Results (RoRs) and Access to Scripts (ATS). 

Please note the following services are only available for written examinations and does not include any Non-Exam Assessments, practical or speaking exams. In line with JCQ regulations, student consent MUST be provided for all the services detailed below.

Review of Results (RoRs)

A Review of Results services offer a clerical re-check and/or a review of marking

Service 1 (RoR1): Clerical Re-Check 

This service is a re-check of all clerical procedures leading to the issue of a result. There will be no change to your final grade. This service will include the following checks:

  • That all parts of the script have been marked
  • The totalling of marks
  • The recording of marks

Service 2 (RoR2): Post-results Review of Marking

The review will determine if the agreed mark scheme has been applied correctly and a re-check of the clerical procedures as detailed in Service 1 (RoR1).

It is essential to note that if a review is carried out there are three possible outcomes:

  • Your original grade may be lowered
  • Your original grade is confirmed as the same
  • Your original grade is raised

Access to Scripts

Students can request access to their marked script(s).

If you are happy with your results and do not wish to carry out a review of marking you may request a copy of your script to be returned. Please note non-priority scripts may be used for teaching and learning purposes. If a request for a non-priority script is made, you cannot then submit a request for a review of marking.  A consent form must be signed before requesting a script.

There is a deadline and a fee for each service should you wish to proceed.  Please speak to the Exams Officer for further information – [email protected]
