Post-Result Guidance

Once students have received their examination results for the academic year, there may be some students that are not happy with the grade that they have received and they may wish to appeal the result that has been awarded.  This year, the process by which students can appeal their grades is different to previous years, given the amendments to the calculation of final outcomes for students, this year.  The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) have issued guidance for the process by which students can appeal examination grades for the academic year 2022-23.

Before students submit a review of marking (ROM) request to the College;(via The College); it is important to note that:

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

Students will only be able to make an post-result by doing the following:

1: Applications for post-result need to be made by the deadline dates given. See below

2: Applications can only be made using the JCQ form, which can be found and downloaded above: APPENDIX A.

3: Post-result must be emailed to or 24 hours before the deadline dates given.

4: Students must email their application from their College email account.  This will act as evidence of the student identity.  If you do not use your College email account, this may delay your post-result request.

Stage 1 – Centre Review

Students can request a review to The College, specifying whether they believe:

1: An administrative error has been made by the centre (for example; the wrong grade /mark was recorded against an item of evidence), or

2: A procedural error has been made by the centre (for example; a reasonable adjustment/access arrangement was not provided for an eligible student)

Students will then be required to provide a short explanation of what they believe went wrong and how this may have impacted the grade.

Students will be notified of the outcome of the appeal, with information of what was considered by the College and the rationale for the outcome of the review.


Stage 2 – appeal to an awarding organization.

An awarding organization appeal must be submitted to The College, and we will then submit it to the awarding organization.

Students will be required to state the grounds for appeal;

1:Administrative error by the awarding organization

2:Procedural issue at The College

3:Unreasonable exercise of academic judgement

Students will then need to provide an explanation of what they believe went wrong and how they think it impacted their grade.

Students must email the Application of Appeal form which can be found and downloaded above from their college account. This will act as proof of identity. The form also contains the following acknowledgement on the part of the student:

“I confirm that I am requesting an appeal for the qualification named above and that I have read and understood the information provided in the ‘Important information for students’ section above."

I am aware that:

Key dates and deadlines for the appeals process:

Priority appeals: dates and deadlines (students will need to give their UCAS personal ID to qualify for a priority appeal – you must include this for a priority appeal).  Priority appeals that do not meet these deadlines may lead to appeals not being completed in time for students applying to higher education who did not attain their firm choice.

Awarding organizations will not accept appeals directly from students or parents.

Appeals cannot be made to an awarding organization until the centre review has been completed.

The college will confirm to the student that it has submitted the examination appeal
