JCQ Review of marking consent forms 2023

 IMPORTANT: please be aware that marks and grades can go down as well as up, there may also be no change at all. Grade boundaries can be very close together so a change in marks can send a result up to the next grade, this also means they could potentially go down a grade if marks are lost following the review of marking. Once a review of marking is completed the original grade will be lost.

All requests should be in by Friday 22nd September

Requests received by the examination boards after Friday 28th September will not be considered.

Please contact the exams officer Miss Frazer cfrazer@salehighschool.org.uk if you have any questions or queries.
