Concerns About Your Results

When you receive your results, if you think that a grade is wrong, please check first with Mrs Davison and she will be able to explain how to apply for a review of marking. If a student puts in for a review of marking it is important to remember that the grade can be lowered. The deadline to submit a request for a review of marking is the 28th September 2023 and the cost will vary depending on the exam board and the number of exam papers requested.
