Reviews of Centre Marks
Candidates may request a review of the centre’s marking of non-examination units in GCSE, GCE and Project qualifications (including coursework and controlled assessment). Candidates considering this option should discuss their results with the relevant teacher and/or Head of Department and may request copies of materials to assist them in making the decision.
Requests for reviews must be made to the Exams Officer, using the form which can be downloaded here. Requests must be accompanied by payment of £30 per review to cover staffing and administrative costs. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Beaumont School’.
Please ensure that individual components (papers or units) are clearly identified and listed separately on the paperwork submitted.
The final deadline for any requests for reviews in qualifications to be awarded in summer 2021 is tbc*.
* Please note that this date does not apply to Art and Design qualifications and P.E. because exam board submission deadlines are different for these subjects. Please refer to information provided by the individual subject teachers or Heads of Department.
Please be aware that reviews can lead to marks going down as well as up. Further information about how we conduct reviews can be found in the Exams Procedure, which is available on the Policies page of the school website.
Special Consideration is a post-examination adjustment to a candidate’s mark or grade to reflect temporary illness, temporary injury or some other event outside of the candidate’s control at the time of the assessment, which has had, or is reasonably likely to have had, a material effect on a candidate’s ability to take an assessment or demonstrate his or her normal level of attainment in an assessment.
You can download a copy of the JCQ document A Guide to the Special Consideration Process 2020/2021 here.
Please notify the Exams Officer, on the day of the exam, if you feel that an application for Special Consideration should be considered for submission
