Post Results Services are only available to candidates sitting GCSE, GCE, Principal Learning & Projects (including Extended Project)
Centres with candidates who have not achieved the grade(s) that were expected of them may wish to pursue an Enquiry About Results (EAR) on behalf of a single candidate or a whole cohort. It is imperative the centre has written permission from each candidate concerned before processing a request for clerical re-checks or a post results review of marking. The candidate must dully understand that their marks for a given assessment may change following a Service 1 or Service 2 EAR and this could result in a subject grade being raised or lowered
There are four EAR services available
1 Clerical Checks
2 Review of original marking
3 Review of original moderation
4 Access to scripts
