Examination Results – Summer 2023

  • Thursday 17 August 2023: AS, A Levels and vocational Level 3 qualifications
  • Thursday 24 August 2023: GCSEs and vocational Level 1/2 qualifications

Post-Results Services

Staff will be available to support students on results days from 8.00am until 12.00pm for students who wish to discuss their results.  After results day, students should email:

If students are unhappy with an examination result, they can ask Lady Manners School to apply to the relevant examination board on the student’s behalf for a clerical re-check or a review of marking. The school can also apply for a copy of the marked paper. There is a fee payable via WisePay for most of these services. The school will not make an application until payment is received.

Details of the services available, the deadlines for making an application and the costs are set out below. There are separate tables of fees and deadlines for GCSE/Level 2 and A level/Level 3 results. Please make sure that you look at the one which is relevant to you and take careful note of the deadlines.

Before the school can apply to the examination board, we need the student’s written consent to make the application. This is because when results are re-checked or reviewed there are three possible outcomes:

  • The original mark could be lowered, so the final grade may be lower than the original grade received;
  • The original mark could be confirmed as correct, so there is no change to the grade;
  • The original mark could be raised, so the final grade may be higher than the original grade received.

If you would like to look at the relevant grade boundaries before deciding whether to make an application, these should be available on the examination boards’ websites from results day onwards as follows:

AQA – https://www.aqa.org.uk/exams-administration/results-days/grade-boundaries

Pearson/Edexcel – https://qualifications.pearson.com/en/support/support-topics/results-certification/grade-boundaries.html

Post-Results Services

The following services are available after receipt of results:

Post-results service Details of the service
Service A

(clerical re-check)

This is a re-check of all clerical procedures leading to the issue of a result. This service will include the following checks:

·         that all parts of the script have been marked

·         the totalling of marks

·         the recording of marks.

Service B

(review of marking – with or without a copy of the script)

This is a post-result review of the original marking to ensure that the agreed mark scheme has been applied correctly. Reviewers will not re-mark the script. They will only act to correct any errors identified in the original marking. This service will include:

·         the clerical re-checks detailed in Service A

·         a review of marking as described above.

Priority Service B

(review of marking – A level only)

This is the same as Service B above but the review is conducted as a priority by the awarding body. This service is only available for A level qualifications.
Service C1

(copy of script to support review of marking)

This is a priority service that ensures copies of scripts are returned in sufficient time to allow decisions to be made about whether a non-priority review of marking should be applied for.
Service C2

(copy of script post-review of marking)

This service enables access to copies of scripts after a review of marking (where this is not provided as part of the service).

 

The fees payable for these services depend on the examination board and whether it is for a GCSE/Level 2 or A Level/Level 3 qualification. They are set out below:

Preparing for examinations

The government has published some advice to help students to cope with examination pressure.  This can be found here.

After the Exams

If you have any queries regarding the summer results or the autumn exam entries please do not hesitate to email our Examinations Officer. Please send a message with a contact number and we will contact you at the earliest opportunity to discuss any queries.

  • The Statement of Results, which each student receives on results day, is only provisional and may not be accepted by colleges and some employers. Exam certificates are the only official proof of results – these are sent to the school during the Autumn Term and presented to students on Speech Day. If a student does not return to the Sixth Form, or does not attend Speech Day, certificates may then be collected from school. A friend or relative can collect them on behalf of a student, but must bring a letter of authority, signed by the student.
