Year 10 Examination Information
Due to Covid please ensure all pupils are fully equipped as stationery cannot be lent out.
Right to appeal
Students do have a right to appeal the grade allocated. There are 2 types of appeal and these are as follows:
- Centre Review - If you don’t think you have been issued with the correct grade, you can appeal to your school or college, who will review whether they:
- made an administrative error, e.g. they submitted an incorrect grade; they used an incorrect assessment mark when determining your grade.
- did not apply a procedure correctly, e.g. they did not follow their Centre Policy, did not undertake internal quality assurance, did not take account of access arrangements or mitigating circumstances, such as illness.
- Appeal to the Exam Board - If you still don’t think you have the correct grade after the centre review is complete, you can ask your school or college to appeal to the exam board, who will review whether:
- the school or college made an unreasonable exercise of academic judgement in the choice of evidence from which they determined your grade and/or in the determination of your grade from that evidence. A reasonable judgement is one that is supported by evidence. An exercise of judgement will not be unreasonable simply because a student considers that an alternative grade should have been awarded, even if the student puts forward supporting evidence. There may be a difference of opinion without there being an unreasonable exercise of judgement. The reviewer will not remark individual assessments to make fine judgements but will take a holistic approach based on the overall evidence.
- the school or college did not apply a procedure correctly, e.g. they did not follow their Centre Policy, did not undertake internal quality assurance, did not take account of access arrangements or mitigating circumstances, such as illness.
- the exam board made an administrative error, e.g. they changed your grade during the processing of grades.
It is very important to remember that as with any appeal, a grade can go up, down or stay the same as a result of the process. Only the student can request an appeal. Once we know the timeline for the appeals process we will update you. We are currently awaiting confirmation of this from the Exam Boards. Any appeal request will be dealt with on an individual basis.
Further guidance from JCQ about the whole Teacher Assessed Grading process can be found in the following document:
There will be an opportunity for students to resit any of their summer 2021 subjects in the Autumn of 2021. We are awaiting further details on the dates for these examinations and will write to you again once we have further details.
There is no doubt that this is not the position we wanted to find ourselves in for the second year running. It has added to what has already been a stressful and disrupted year. You can however rest assured that all teachers have the best interests of the students at the heart of this process.
If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Tuffnell or Mrs Robinson or email email@example.com
