Post results services
The following Post Results Services are available from the examination boards:
You can ask for a priority copy of your exam script(s) before deciding whether to ask for a re-mark. You may instead ask for a non-priority copy of your exam script for general interest but, if you do, you cannot ask for a re-mark later.
You can ask for a full clerical check of your exam script. A check will be made to see that all parts of your script have been marked, that the marks on the script have been correctly totalled and correctly recorded.
Whether initially you request your script or not you may apply to have your exam paper re-marked by a senior examiner if you feel an error has been made. A full clerical check will also be made. Please note: Priority Re-marks are only available to Year 13 students whose place in higher education is dependent upon the outcome.
