Application for an Appeal

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.

  • Payment for post-result request excluding access to scripts (which are free) payment must be made via ParentPay before we process the request
  • We must have at least 24 hours notice before the deadline so we can process it in time

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 judgment

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

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 acknowledgment 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:

  • The outcome of the appeal may result in my grade remaining the same, being lowered or raised
  • I understand that there is no further opportunity to appeal to the awarding organisation and that the next stage would be to contact the regulator. The awarding organisation will include the next appropriate steps, where applicable, in their appeal outcome letter which you will receive from your school/college.”


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.
