Summer 2021 Examination Results Appeal Process
This summer has again been unusual with respect to how results have been determined as once again formal exams were cancelled. Your grades this summer are teacher assessed grades.
The process by which the college has arrived at a teacher assessed grade has been a complex one. Staff have taken into account a range of factors such as practice exams, assignments, performance in class, coursework, predicted grades and experience of students in previous years. These judgements have then been internally moderated by programme teams, and also externally moderated, before being sent off to the exam boards.
Grounds for appeal
There are two grounds for appeal.
- Procedural error - If you believe that the college has not followed its procedures properly in awarding a teacher assessed grade as set out in the Centre Policy. (This is not the same thing as being disappointed in the grade that has been predicted.)
- Administrative error - If the college has made an error when recording or submitting the grade to the exam boards.
You must request a Centre review before you can request an awarding organisation appeal. This is so that the awarding organisation is certain that your grade is as the centre intended.
