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.


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.
