A-LEVEL AND BTEC REVIEW OF RESULTS AND ACCESS TO SCRIPTS

If you want to query the result of an exam or request a copy of an exam paper (script), each exam board (AQA, Edexcel and OCR) run a post results service. Please note that all enquiries must be made through the school and not to the exam board directly as they will not accept approaches by candidates or their family.

What can you request?

  • Review of results – either a clerical re-check, review of marking or priority review of marking.
  • Access to scripts – either a priority copy of script or script for learning purposes.

How do you make a request?

1. Decide which type of review of results or access to scripts you want.

Please be aware that following a review of results your final subject grade and/or mark awarded may be lower than, higher than, or the same as the result which was originally awarded. If you are unsure whether to request a clerical re-check or review of marking you can request a priority copy script to help you decide.

2. Complete the consent form (Click Here for review of results consent form or Click Here for access to scripts consent form).

Only the candidate can sign the form, parents/carers cannot request a review on behalf of the candidate.

3. Give consent form and payment to Miss Evans in the Exams Office before 3.00pm on deadline date.

Fees are per exam paper and are listed further down this page with the relevant deadline (please note earlier deadline for priority requests). Requests cannot be processed until payment is received.

Make cheques payable to Northampton School for Boys and write a separate cheque for each request. We hold cheques until the review of results outcome is received and if the grade changes, the cheque will be destroyed because the exam board do not charge for the review.

Who to contact?

Miss Evans, Exams Secretary will process the requests for review of results and access to scripts. Email: hevans@nsb.northants.sch.uk

If you need advice on whether to submit a review of results or access to scripts please call reception on 01604 230240, who will direct your enquiry to the most appropriate member of staff.
