Examination Board Post-Results Services

The examination boards offer various services for candidates unhappy with the outcome of examinations. Strict deadlines apply and will be detailed on the request forms. 

Normal Post-Results Services don’t apply to Summer 2021, due to the cancellation of exams. However there is a two stage TAG Appeal Process for candidates who believe there is an error in their results. The school process and deadlines are detailed in the Important Post Results Information document below (this will also be enclosed in Results envelopes).

Further detail and guidance from JCQ and Ofqual can be found here:
