Review of results

Candidates requesting a review of results, or copy of their exam script need to provide written consent and full payment before requests can be processed. If a review of results is requested then it is possible for marks to be lowered, remain the same or increase. This can lead to a lower overall grade, or the same grade or a higher grade.

Any enquiries about results for internal candidates have to be made to the exam board through the school.

Before any enquiry can be made the candidate:-

  • has to seek agreement from the school that this is an appropriate action
  • needs to sign a consent form
  • Pay the appropriate cost.

Costs and consent form can be found here.

Requestsconsent and payment need to be with Mrs Lyons in the exam office before the deadlines. Cheques made payable to The Purbeck School.

Resits

Please see the attached document about students returning to retake exams. This will be at the discretion of the head teacher. All costs incurred including exam fees, administration fees, invigilation costs and any costs incurred due to access requirements are to be paid in advance by the candidate.

Summer 2021 External Exam Dates

Following the government announcement in January, all external written exams have been cancelled.

Students will be awarded a grade based on teacher assessment. The grades submitted to exam boards will reflect a fair, reasonable and carefully considered judgement of the student’s performance across a range of evidence, on the curriculum content that they have been taught. The evidence could include work which has already been completed during the course as well as that which will be completed in the weeks and months to come. Evidence should relate to the specification content and should reflect, as far as possible, the sorts of questions and tasks that students would normally undertake in preparation for the qualification. An internal quality assurance process, including internal standardisation of marking and grading judgements, will be put in place.
