Analysing the results
ResultsPlus is a free online results analysis tool for teachers that gives you a detailed analysis of your students' exam performance. You can also see how they have performed on every question and compare their performance to the national average.
Access to Scripts
You will be able to view and download scripts which have been marked online free of charge from our Self Service Portal using Script Viewer function in Edexcel Online. This service is open until 14 December 2018.
The Portal can only be accessed by Edexcel Online users who have the Exam Viewer profile ticked on Edexcel Online. Your exams officer gives teachers access to Exam Viewer. Please note that these scripts do not contain examiners' annotations.
If scripts have been marked "traditionally" (i.e. not online), you will have to request them, free of charge, by 14 December 2018, via the Post Results section of Edexcel Online as in previous exam series.
Candidate consent is required before requesting script copies, as per section 6.2.1 of the JCQ's Post-results services guide. Candidate consent can only be obtained after results have been published. There is a candidate consent form in Appendix B of the JCQ Guide.
Examiners' reports are a useful way of understanding the standard that has been applied. You can see exemplar student answers to each question with examiner comments and tips.
GCE examiners' reports will be available on ResultsPlus on results days and uploaded to the website the following week.
When the examiners' reports are available, you can find them using these links:
Reviews of Marking and Moderation (formerly Enquiries About Results)
This is a formal procedure which cannot be done over the phone. Please speak to your exams officer if you wish to proceed with a Review of Marking and Moderation (RoMM).
If a grade is changed following a review, there will be no fee.
If you would like to apply for a review of marking you will need the permission of the candidate who must be made aware that marks can be reduced as well as raised.
Service 1 is a clerical check.
Service 2 is a review of marking.
Service 2P is a priority review of marking available if a GCE A-level candidate’s place in higher education is dependent on the outcome.
Service 3 is a review of moderation.
Please remember that the last date for us to receive applications for reviews of marking services is 20 September 2018. The deadline for requesting a priority service 2 review of marking is 23 August 2018.
