DO YOU THINK THAT YOUR GRADE IS INCORRECT?

If you want to query the result of an examination, Examination Boards run a Post Results Service. PLEASE NOTE that all enquiries must be made through the school and NOT to the Examination Board as they will not accept approaches by candidates or their family.

CONTACTS:

Mrs Joanna Weller, Examinations Secretary will process any queries that students may have. You can contact her at the school on 01604 230240 or email: jweller@nsb.northants.sch.uk

If you are unable to contact Mrs Weller, please contact Mrs Kennedy, Assistant Headteacher (Examinations) on the above number or email: dkennedy@nsb.northants.sch.uk

Mrs Kennedy will be available throughout the post results period at the school.

Please DO NOT wait to see if you can contact any other member of staff, especially if your query is urgent.

Please note that a Candidate Request Form must be signed and a Fee paid before any request can be submitted.  Only the candidate can sign the request form, parents cannot submit a request on behalf of the candidate. See below for a copy of the form. You can also obtain a copy of the form from Mrs Weller. 

There are slightly different services available for A Level examinations due to the potential knock-on effects of grades on University places.

A Level Post Results Services

Priority Review of Marking -  If you wish to have your examination remarked as a priority because your university place is at risk, this is the service you require.

Deadline: Requests MUST be made to the examination board by 21st August

A Level/AS Level & GCSE Post Results Services

If you are unsure whether to proceed, you can ask for your script back. This can then be reviewed and you can see whether it is worth going for a remark. Please note that this service is NOT available for GCSEs.

Service 2 – Review of Marking

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

Deadline: Requests MUST be made to the examination board by 20th September

    A Level GCSE
Fees per paper AQA £43.45 £37.55

If you are unsure whether to proceed, you can ask for your script back. This can then be reviewed and you can see whether it is worth going for a remark.

Access to Scripts – A Level (All examination boards) and GCSE (Edexcel & OCR only)

If you think that you have the wrong grade but would like a teacher to look at what you wrote before asking for a remark, you can ask for a Priority Copy of Script to support Enquiries about Results. See below for a copy of the form.

The script will be returned to the school no later than 10 September and this gives you and your teacher time to review what you actually wrote at the time of the exam and see whether or not it is worthwhile asking for a remark.

Deadline: Requests for a script MUST be made to the examination board by 21st August.

If you have any enquires regarding queries about results please contact either Mrs Weller or Mrs Kennedy at the school.
