Exam Results - Appeals Process
09 Jul 2021
Dear Students & Parents/Carers,
As you will all be aware, the Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) were submitted on 18 June after a thorough internal quality assurance process. We are now underway with the external quality assurance process and a number of samples have been sent to the exam boards.
We wanted to ensure that you were fully aware of the appeals process ahead of results day and have endeavoured to summarise this below.
This blog from the DfE is a great starting point as it clearly explains the process
If you would like to read the full JCQ appeals guidance document it can be found here
We have produced a flow diagram to help you understand this process further
If after receiving your results you believe you may want to make an appeal then please use the summary tables below to ensure that you are fully aware of the process and the deadlines. These tables also contain links to the forms you will need to submit should you wish to proceed. Please ensure that it is the STUDENT sending the forms back to the e mails listed in the table and not the parent – we will not be able to progress with appeals that come from parents as we will need consent from the student to proceed. It should be noted that if you proceed with an appeal your grade may change (it could be raised, it could be lowered or it could stay the same). Once a finding has been made it cannot be withdrawn. If your grade is lowered, you will not be able to revert to the original grade you received on results day.

There is still a degree of uncertainty as to whether exam boards will charge for appeals progressing to stage 2. As soon as we have this information we will share it with you.
If you have any questions with regard appeals before results day then please email email@example.com
