Appeal an exam result

1. Overview

You can challenge the result of an exam or qualification if you think it’s wrong.

GCSE, AS, A level or Diploma

You can ask your school or college to get an exam result looked at again - this is called requesting a review.

You may be able to request a review from the exam board yourself.

If you’re not satisfied with the outcome, you or your school can make an appeal to Ofqual.

Other qualifications

Contact the awarding organisation and appeal to them directly about the results for any other qualification, for example a BTEC or an NVQ.

They’ll send you a final report after they’ve reviewed the result.

If you’re not happy with the outcome of the appeal, you can contact Ofqual to make a complaint.
