Can you tell me how Teacher Assessed Grades have been calculated?
We have a clear set of rules which we have followed to award Teacher Assessed Grades. This is called the Centre Policy. If you decide you want to appeal your grades you will need to refer to the Centre Policy. You can download a copy here.
Who do I contact if I am unhappy with my results?
If you are unhappy with your results, you should complete a Teacher Assessed Grade – Post Enquiry form and a member of the relevant team will respond to your enquiry within seven working days. You can complete the form here.
Am I able to appeal my grade this year?
Yes, you have the right to appeal your grade and request a college review this year. However, please be aware that the appeals process is limited and only allows students to appeal their grade where they believe an administrative or procedural error has been made in assigning the grade.
How will the appeals work?
Appeals are conducted in two stages:
- Stage one is called a Centre Review (the 'Centre' is your college). Any student can submit a request for a Centre Review if they believe the Centre has either failed to follow its procedure properly or made an administrative error in relation to the result (see the section above to download our Centre Policy).
- Stage two is an Appeal to the awarding organisation. Any student who considers that there has been a procedural error, an administrative error or that their grade reflects an unreasonable exercise of academic judgement (either because of the way the grade has been determined and/or the selection evidence), may submit a request for an awarding organisation appeal.
A stage two Appeal can only be made to the awarding organisation after you have submitted a stage one Centre Review to the College and received the outcome. Appeals to the awarding organisation can only be submitted by the Centre (the college) on behalf of the student.
What is a priority appeal?
A priority appeal is only for students applying to Higher Education who did not attain their firm choice (the offer they accepted as their first choice) and wish to appeal an A level or other Level 3 qualification result. You should inform your intended higher education institution that you have requested a College Review or Appeal. A link to the form to make a priority appeal will be available on results day.
Where will I find further information on the appeals process?
There is lots of useful information relating to the appeals process which can be found on the JCQ website – Summer 2021 arrangements page or the respective Awarding Organisation that your qualification is awarded by.
Will I be charged if I request a college review?
No, you will not be charged if you request a College Review or Appeal your grade.
