The grounds for appeal are:
|Stage 1||Centre Review||The school will check whether it has made an administrative or procedural error, or both, and may change the grade as a result.|
|Stage 2||Awarding Organisation Appeal||
The awarding organisation (exam board) will check whether the school has made a procedural error or whether the awarding organisation has made an administrative error.
Students can also ask the awarding organisation to check whether the academic judgement made by the school was reasonable.
The grade may change as a result.
Please read the letter from Mr Hogan, see below, which details the process you need to follow.
To request a Centre review, Appeal or a list of the evidence used to calculate your grade, please use the forms, which will be available on this page, on Tuesday 10th August. You must request a Stage 1 Centre review before you can request a Stage 2 Appeal.
At both stages of the process you will need to give your consent to conduct the appeal or submit it to the exam board on your behalf. It is important to remember that your grade can go down, up or stay the same through either stage of the process.
A priority review or appeal is only to be used by students applying to higher education who did not attain their firm choice (i.e. the offer they accepted as their first choice). You should inform your intended higher education provider that you have requested a centre review or appeal.
The table below sets out the deadlines by which appeals must be submitted to the school to enable us to compile and complete the documentation in time to submit to the awarding organisation if necessary.
The table also sets out the last date that the school will issue outcomes of Stage 1 Centre Reviews so that students have time to consider whether to submit a Stage 2 Awarding Organisation Appeals before the deadlines.
