post results services

Post Results Services (JCQ) or Enquiry About Results, to use CAIEs descriptor, is the process by which a candidate can query/challenge the grade(s) they have been awarded, following marking and moderation by Awarding Organisations.

Prior to any Post Results Service request, a candidate must provide their written consent for clerical re-checks and reviews of marking after the publication of results. Access to these services can only be made via the centre where you sat your examination(s) and typically incur a fee, per paper, to cover the cost levied by the AO for lodging your enquiry and associated centre administration costs. Post Results Service charges can be found in our Fees List.
