Results Day Support

If you are a centre with a concern about your students’ results, you can use our post-results services. The following support will be available to you this year:

E9 Moderator Report

A general report available to all centres which outlines the moderators’ observations and any actions taken in respect of the centre awarded marks. Please note that the E9 form covers both components 1 and 2 in a single report.

Review of moderation (Service 3)

Where we've adjusted centre marks during moderation, this service check that our moderator has made an accurate judgement on the centre’s ability to mark the work to the national standard. This includes:

  • a review of the original moderation by a senior moderator;
  • feedback with a similar level of detail to the original moderator report.

A review of moderation (Service 3) replicates the original moderation process and therefore the same sample will need to be available for review. Any mark changes may impact all candidates completing this component at the centre in the current exam session.

Please note that this service can't be requested if we agreed centre marks during moderation.

Once you have submitted your review of marking request to us through Edexcel Online, we'll fax you an acknowledgement letter listing the original sample of candidates. You'll need to ensure that the work of these candidates is available for moderation review. Please notify us once you've received the list of sampled candidates.

We'll make arrangements for a senior moderator to visit your centre. You'll be liable for all associated costs, which we'll calculate pro rata on the basis of the number of candidates who meet the criteria. The costs would include the senior moderator’s fees, travelling expenses, subsistence costs and, if necessary, accommodation costs and teacher-release payments. However, you won't need to pay the standard Service 3 fees in addition to this.

If the requested sample is not available to the senior moderator, he or she will withdraw and we will uphold the original moderation decision. You'll remain liable for all associated costs.

We'll let you know the outcome of your Service 3 request within 35 days of the centre visit.

The original sample per unit/paper across endorsements must be made available for your request to be valid. It is possible to request an Service 3 review of moderation on one unit or paper only, but not if your centre has entered for multiple endorsements.

Candidates’ marks may be confirmed, lowered or raised, but we don't require candidates’ consent for this service. You'll also receive a report giving feedback similar to that provided after the original moderation. Please remember not to return work to candidates until after the review of marking and moderation deadline has passed.
