Notes for Editors
- No geographic breakdown is published.
If a school or college is concerned about a candidate’s grade, it can make an enquiry about the result to the awarding organisation, which will then review the accuracy of the grade.
If the review of the result shows that marking or processing errors have been made and the candidate’s grade is incorrect, the awarding organisation will change the result up or down, as appropriate.
If a school or college has gone through the enquiries about results process and is dissatisfied with the outcome, it can appeal to the awarding organisation. An appeal can be in relation to one or more candidates’ grades, if they are all thought to be impacted by the same issue.
