Post-Results Services

If you are unhappy with your grade following the release of public examination results there are several options. Please read the guide to post results services - https://www.jcq.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Post-Results-Service_June22_FINAL-1.pdf - to understand what is available and speak to the Exams Officer or your teacher. As the deadlines are set by the Exam Boards late requests cannot be accepted, note that the deadlines of the request for post-results services form allow for processing time within school so we cannot guarantee that request after these dates will be processed to meet the Exam Board deadlines.

Review of Marking

A review of marking may be requested by students at their own expense. Please use the request for post-results services form with payment for the application to be processed. Students and parents are reminded that a remark can result in their marks and/or grade being lowered. It is recommended, therefore, that candidates seek the advice of their subject teacher(s) or head of department before making a request.

Recall of Exam Scripts

Scripts (papers) may be requested by students to inform/support an appeal about a result. Candidates will need to give their consent by completing the post-results services form and full payment will be required in advance of the application being submitted where applicable. Teachers may ask for permission to use a copy for teaching and learning purposes, this will need written consent from the student, but the relevant Department(s) will meet an associated costs.

Exam Certificates

Certificates are important legal documents which are required for CVs, job applications and to verify the Statement of Results which was issued on results day. Please ensure that they are kept securely as the school does not keep a copy, and if you lose or never collect them you will need to liaise directly with the relevant examination board(s) and pay for Certified Statements of Results.

Certificates can be collected in person by the student from the January following the summer exams (i.e. for Summer 2022 certificates will be available from January 2023). Alternatively, you can nominate someone else (e.g. a parent/carer, or sibling still in the school in years 11, 12 or 13) to collect your certificates for you by downloading, printing off, completing and signing the Certificate Collection Form. They must then bring the completed form to student reception and will be required to show their photo ID (passport or driving licence) as well as signing a declaration to confirm receipt of your certificates at the time of collection. We also offer a postal delivery using the Royal Mail  Special Delivery service which has adequate insurance cover in the event of loss or damage. This can be requested using the Certificate Collection Form- there is a single fixed fee of £7.50 to use this method of delivery and the fee needs to be paid before certificates are posted.

Uncollected certificates will be held in school for at least one year, after which time we reserve the right to destroy them. If you have not collected certificates that are more than a year old, please contact the Exams Officer (Gwyneth Edwards – This email address is being protected from spambots.
