Information for candidates – using social media and examinations/assessments:
It is important that candidates understand that sharing information about assessments or exams on social media platforms is considered malpractice and can lead to action being taken against students who distribute, or discuss, this information with other candidates. Should candidates receive such information they must report this to a member of staff immediately. This advisory document summarises JCQs policy relating to use of social media and exam information JCQ – Social Media & Exams.

Results can also be delivered by email, post and/or telephone. For students who wish their results to be collected by another person (including family members) or sent to another person’s email account, we will require their permission to authorise this.
Review of marking and appeals processes:
Should a student have concerns over their results they are entitled to apply for a range of ‘Post-Results Services’. These services include:
- Clerical re-checks
- Reviews of marking
- Reviews of moderation
- Access to scripts
Further details on post-results services can be found here: JCQ Post-Results Services 2023
The Appeals process follows the application of the post results services, including a review of marking. Appeals are used where there is a concern that the outcome of a post-results service, including a review of marking is disputed. Appeals can only be submitted by the school, on the candidate’s behalf. As in a review of marking, marks can go up, stay the same, or go down in the appeals process.
