Post Results Services

Post-Results Services Payment

If you are unhappy with your grade you may wish to pursue an enquiry about results. Once results are released the exam series enters the final stage of the exam cycle, known as post-results. This is the time awarding bodies make post-results services (PRS) available. See below the list of Post-Results Services available:

*Fees are per examination.  Post-Results Services fees are determined by the exam boards.

There are three possible outcomes to an enquiry about result;

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

Every year a number of students have papers checked/reviewed which result in their grade being lowered.  We recommend that only students who are very close to a higher grade boundary request an enquiry about result.
