Arrangements for appeals

The Ofqual guidance to appeals, malpractice & maladministration states:

The arrangements for awarding qualifications in summer 2020 are:

Only schools and colleges can submit an appeal. This also applies to private candidates (students who do not study in a school or college.)

If a candidate has concerns about how grades were arrived at they should talk to the school about their options.

  • A candidate can ask their centre to check whether it made a mistake when submitting data to the awarding body (If the centre finds it made a mistake in the data it provided it can ask the awarding body to correct it)

  • The centre can appeal to the awarding body on a candidate’s behalf if it believes the awarding body made a mistake when it communicated a candidate’s grade

  • A candidate cannot challenge the centre under the appeals process on the centre assessment grades it submitted or the rank order positions

  • A candidate cannot appeal because their mock exam result was higher than the grade awarded. The mock grade will have been taken into account in deciding a candidate’s centre assessment grade. Candidates will either receive their centre assessment grade or the calculated grade (whichever is higher)

  • This summer, candidates grades are protected and will not go down as a result of an appeal.

  • If the centre is unhappy with the outcome of the awarding body’s appeals process, it can appeal this decision through Ofqual’s Examination Procedures Review Service

  • A candidate can appeal against their centre’s decision

    • not to seek any information the awarding body holds that would be needed for an appeal;

      and/or

    • not to appeal to the awarding body
