  • Provide the Exams Officer with written permission for someone else to collect your results on your behalf, complete the collection of results permission form below. The permission form must be handed in when the results are collected and your nominated representative (and that includes a parent) will require a form of identification (eg passport, driving licence). Please note that exam results are not provided over the phone, or by text or email under any circumstances.

Collection of results permission form

Arrangements for Appeals

There are two stages to the appeals process:

Stage 1 – Centre Review

If you believe your grade is incorrect based on the grounds listed below, you can ask for a Stage 1 Centre Review on the grounds of either:

  • An administrative error (e.g. the wrong mark has been recorded) or
  • A procedural error (e.g. access arrangements were not properly provided for you)

You cannot appeal Teacher Assessed Grade if your only reason is:

  • You are unhappy with your grade
  • You wanted/needed a higher grade than you have been awarded

You must request a Stage 1 Centre Review BEFORE you can request an Appeal to the Awarding Organisation, this is so the examination board is certain that your grade is as the centre intended.

You will need to complete Section A Student Request Form: Stage One Centre Review form

Instructions for completion are here

  • When you have completed the Centre Review form, it should be saved and returned as an email attachment, using your school email address (if a non-school email address is used it will be blocked by the school’s security filter). Your email must be sent to the following email address: appeals@sjl.herts.sch.uk

Please note

  • Your electronic signature is acceptable, but with this, you are confirming that you are aware that there is no grade protection, so your grade could increase, be lowered or remain the same.
  • On receipt of your completed form, we will conduct a review to determine if any mistakes have been made.
  • On completion of our review, we will complete Section B Centre Review Outcome and send that to you via your school email address, in sufficient time prior to the relevant appeal to an awarding organisation deadline.
  • If an administrative or procedural error is found, we will submit a request to the awarding organisation to correct the error and amend the grade without the need to submit an appeal to the awarding organisation.

Deadlines

For a Priority Appeal (This is only available for students who did not achieve their first choice offer)

Applications for a Centre Review must be made by 12 noon on Monday 16 August 2021.

Non-priority appeals must be made by 12 noon on Friday 3 September 2021.

 

Stage 2- Appeal to the Awarding Organisation

If the school doesn’t identify an error but you still believe your grade is wrong, you can ask us to submit a Stage 2 Appeal to Awarding Organisation. This can only be submitted if the first stage has been completed and you have been advised of the outcome.

This appeal can be made on the following grounds:

  • An administrative error by the school or 
  • A procedural error by the school or
  • An unreasonable exercise of academic judgement either in the determination of the grade or the selection of evidence

The exam board will consider whether the school has followed its written process, and review the evidence your grade was based on.

You will need to complete the Stage Two: Appeal to Awarding Organisation form

Instructions for completion are here

  • When you have completed the Stage Two: Appeal to Awarding Organisation Form, it should be saved and returned as an email attachment, using your school email address – (If a non-school email address is used it will be blocked by the school’s security filter). Your email must be sent to the following email address: appeals@sjl.herts.sch.uk

The awarding organisation will not be able to consider an appeal that is based solely on differences of opinion- if the student wants to improve their grade, they may wish to consider entering for the Autumn Exam Series using the re-sit request form which under the heading Exam Dates.

Please note

  • The awarding organisation will determine the grade at appeal and the outcome will be final.
  • The outcome of the appeal may result in the grade remaining the same, being lowered or raised.  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
  • There is no further opportunity to appeal the outcome to the awarding organisation.

Deadlines

For a Priority Appeal (This is only available for students who did not achieve their first choice offer)

Requests for a Stage 2 Appeal to awarding organisation must be made by 12 noon on Monday 23 August 2021

Certificates

From early December, students who have left the school, can collect their certificates from the school reception  (between 8.30am-4pm) and you must have some photographic ID with you. Alternatively you can nominate someone to collect them on your behalf, but you must complete the Collection of Exam Certificates Permission Form and give to your nominated person.

If you are unable to collect your certificates or arrange someone to collect on your behalf, you can request the school to post them to you, however there is a cost of approximately £7.00 for this service as the exam boards require us to use a signed for tracking service.  Please contact the Exams Officer if you wish to use this service.
