2021 Appeals



SUMMER 2021 – due to the current cancellation of examinations the appeal process for this summer will differ from previous years

Before appealing it is important that you are clear on what grounds you can appeal your result; you can only appeal if you think there has been an error in the process.  You can’t appeal just because you do not agree with the grade you received.

2020-21 guidance and documents will be added to this page as soon as we have further information

Formal requests should be made by completing the Appeal request form  the deadline for appeals to be submitted to the School will be 3 September 2021.

Post Results Services is the normal review process and are provided by all the Examination Boards for schools. These services will however not be available for the Summer 2021 results, apart from Functional Skills exams that took place:

  • Clerical recheck – A re-check of all clerical procedures leading to the issue of a result. For example, checking that all parts of the script have been marked, and that the totalling and recording of marks is correct.
  • Review of marking – to ensure the agreed mark scheme has been applied correctly and to carry out clerical checks. It is NOT a re-marking of the script. This service is only available to externally assessed components, for example, external Examination Papers, not course work.
    You are reminded that a review of marking as well as clerical checks could result in a mark being adjusted DOWN as well as UP.
  • Access to scripts – Candidates are able to request access to their own scripts for general interest or to inform future learning, for example for re-sitting examinations. A request for this service must be signed and dated by the candidate.

Although the Examinations Officer can advise regarding the above services from an administrative viewpoint, it is usual for students and/or parents to contact their subject teacher or head of department for specific help and advice as to whether one or more of the services should be accessed.

On Results Day you signed a consent to allow school to make an enquiry about the results of your examinations. In giving consent you acknowledged that you understood that your final subject grade awarded may be lower than, higher than or the same as the grade which was originally awarded.

HOW TO APPLY

Requests for any of the above services must be made in writing on the Post-Result Form, to the Exams Office as soon as possible to meet the examination boards deadline. A cheque made payable to Bramhall High School, for the correct amount (see CHARGES on the form) must accompany each request.
