Appeal against a GCSE, AS or A level grade or the result of a qualification

Skip to contents of guide


You can challenge a grade or the result of a qualification if you think there’s been a mistake.

This appeals process only applies to England. Find out more about:

GCSEs, AS levels or A levels

You can ask your school or college to request a review from the exam board.

Other qualifications

You can ask your school, college or training provider to review the results of any other qualification, for example a BTEC or an NVQ.

If you’re not satisfied with the outcome, you can appeal directly to the awarding organisation. They’ll send you a final report after they’ve reviewed the result.

If you think the awarding organisation did not deal with your appeal correctly, you can complain to Ofqual.
