Appeals and Autumn Exams

Any student who would like to improve their grades will have the opportunity to take the full suite of GCSE’s and some Vocational Subjects in October & November. You also have the opportunity to re-sit in Summer 2021. If you choose to do this, both grades will stand and the highest grade can be used for progression.

Ofqual has confirmed that appeals will only be allowed where a school believes it has made an error when submitting its Centre Assessment Grades or Rank Orders.

Pease contact the school in the first instance who will check the Centre Assessed Grade was entered correctly.

Bias and Discrimination

A student with concerns about bias, discrimination, or any other reason why a school didn’t fairly assign a grade or ranking, should raise this with school in the first instance.

Students cannot directly appeal directly to Exam Boards. Appeals must be authorised by the Head of Centre. Student’s written consent will be required in order for to log an appeal on your behalf.

It is advisable that if school does log an appeal on your behalf, you are still entered to re-sit the exam in the Autumn Series. This is because of the tight timelines for the Autumn series entry and the turnaround time required for an appeal.
