Post-Results Services Summer 2024

If you are unhappy with your examination results and think there may have been a mistake made by the examination board there are several routes open to you.

Firstly, speak to or email your subject teacher or the Head of Faculty. Get their opinion on how you performed and whether they think some sort of enquiry into your results is worthwhile. It’s important to remember that marks and grades can go down as well as up and for many of the post-results services there is a cost. However, if there is a grade change you will receive a full refund.

There are several different types of post-results services:

Access to Scripts

The exam board will supply a copy of your marked exam script/paper. This can be helpful for teaching staff to look at when helping you decide if it is worth applying for any other post-results services.

Clerical Re-Check

A post-results service to check all the clerical procedures were carried out, such as all pages were marked, all marks were counted and added up correctly and the result matches the marks on the paper.

Review of Marking

This is a post-results review of the original marking to ensure that the agreed mark scheme has been applied correctly.

If you are a Year 13 student and have a university place waiting on the result it is possible to request a priority remark which the awarding bodies will prioritise. You can also request a copy of your exam script after the review.

For the priority service and the post-review copy of script there will be additional charges.

The charges and deadlines for each service are listed here. It is important to remember that the cost for each service is for each paper and not for the whole qualification. For example, GCSE Mathematics consists of three papers, each paper is a separate enquiry and therefore has a separate cost. If you are currently or previously have been in receipt of free school meals there may be funding available to help with the costs, please contact for further details. 

If you decide that you want to request a post-results service, please ensure that you follow the steps detailed below:

  1. Download the form from the link at the bottom of this page and complete it. Most of the information you need is on the provisional statement of results you received on results day. Ensure you complete every section including the box giving your consent; without this we cannot process your application.
  2. Calculate the total cost payable for the post-result service and make payment on School Gateway. Your application cannot be processed until you have made your payment. Notes on how to use School Gateway can be found here.
  3. Email your completed application to We will check that we have received your payment, send you an acknowledgement email and send your application to the appropriate awarding body.
  4. Once we have received the outcome of the post-results service you have requested, we will forward this to you at the email address you have provided.

For GDPR reasons we can only accept a post-results application from candidates; we cannot accept applications from parents/carers on your behalf. 


Examination certificates will be available for collection from the main school reception from Monday 9th December. You will be asked to sign for your certificates and will need to bring identification with you. Following exam board guidelines we will store certificates for a year and then they will be shredded; if you do not collect your certificates you will need to approach the examination boards directly for replacements at a significant cost.
