Grades Appeals

Important information for students on summer (teachers assessed grade) appeals.

 

In the first instance it is worth speaking to your tutor or curriculum area who can help explain what your options are. One of the options will be to request a centre review.


If you request a centre review or an awarding organisation appeal there are three possible outcomes:

  • Your original grade is lowered, so your final grade will be lower than the original grade you received.
  • Your original grade is confirmed, so there is no change to your grade.
  • Your original grade is raised, so your final grade will be higher than the original grade you received.

Once a finding has been made you cannot withdraw your request for a centre review or appeal. If your grade has been lowered you will not be able to revert back to the original grade you received on results day.


You can ask the centre to check whether it made a procedural error, an administrative error, or both. A procedural error means a failure to follow the process set out in the centre policy. An administrative error means an error in recording your grade or submitting your grade to the awarding organisation.

You must request a centre review before you can request an awarding organisation appeal. This is so the awarding organisation is certain that your grade is as the centre intended.

 


You can ask the awarding organisation to check whether the centre made a procedural or administrative error - or whether the awarding organisation itself made an administrative error.

You can also ask the awarding organisation to check whether the academic judgement of the centre was unreasonable, either in the selection of evidence or the determination of your grade.

The closing date for requesting a centre review has now passed if you have any queries please contact examsenquiries@mbro.ac.uk

Once you have received the outcome of your centre review, if you wish to request an awarding organisation appeal you should do so as soon as possible. Your school or college will submit this on your behalf. Requests for a priority appeal should be submitted by 23 August 2021 and requests for non-priority appeals should be submitted by 17 September 2021.

Priority appeals that aren’t submitted to the awarding organisation by 23 August 2021 will still be treated as a priority but they may not be completed in time for those with a higher education place dependent on the outcome of the appeal.


A priority appeal is only for students applying to higher education who did not attain their firm choice (i.e. 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 provider that you have requested a centre review or appeal.

Your UCAS personal ID is the 10 digit code included in all correspondence from UCAS.

This is needed to confirm that a student’s place is dependent on the outcome of the appeal.

Make sure you have read all the information before you submit an appeal. And it is always best to speak to your department first.

You can only submit an appeal once you have your results. See information on timescales to see when the appeal needs to be submitted by.

Remember you are asking the college to check whether it made a procedural error, an administrative error, or both.

To submit an appeal please follow the link below and complete ALL relevant information (failure to do so could delay the appeal).
