There are a number of services available for reviews of results some of which are only available for A-level and some for GCSE.

Service Level

 For A-level only



Priority review



Priority review with photocopy



Priority access to scripts




If you have a University place pending your A-level results then you need a priority review. You only have a week to apply. These can take up to 20 calendar days but awarding bodies aim to complete these before the end of August and usually arrive before then. Applications can be made on Results Day via the exams office.

Should you be unsure of whether to have a review of marking then service 3 allows you get a photocopy of your script the copies should be back at school by the 5th September but usually arrive before then. This gives you time to decide whether you want a remark before the 19th September deadline.

Service Level

GCSE and A-level






Review with photocopy



This is just a standard review where time is not of the essence. Be aware that grades can go down as well as up so it is important to discuss this option with your subject teacher, especially if you are near a grade boundary. Awarding bodies have 20 calendar days to complete these reviews.

Service Level

GCSE and A-level



Clerical re-check



Clerical re-check with photocopy



This is not a review of your exam paper but is checked to ensure that all questions have been marked, all marks have been added up and totalled correctly. Awarding bodies have 10 calendar days to complete these checks.


Service Level

GCSE and A-level



Non-priority access to scripts (original)



Do not ask for your original exam paper back if you are considering any kind of appeal about your results. This option is only for students who wish to learn from their exam paper. The scripts are returned to school between 21st September and 14th November.

All of these services are available both on and after results days but do double check the opening times of the exams office during the holiday. Application forms for these services and costs are hyperlinked in the first paragraph of this section.

If you are unsure which service you would like then please see this handy infographic below that may help you decide, alternatively get in contact with the exams office who will be happy to help you.
