I have just received my learners' results and I am unhappy with them. What can I do?

You can:

  • Re-enter your learners for the unit in the 2013/2014 academic year
  • Request a clerical review (EAR1)
  • Request a re-mark (EAR2).

Enquiries About Results

Enquiries About Results (EAR) and requests for copies of the scripts can only be submitted via Edexcel Online. You will need to ensure that you have applied for a post-results service within 10 working days of receiving learner results, as applications submitted after this date will not be accepted.

The below post-results services are available to you.


Post-results service 1 is a clerical check, with an SLA of 20 days after the request has been acknowledged. This service costs £10.30 per learner.

This service constitutes a check of all clerical procedures that lead to the issue of a result. This service might be considered when anomalous results have been issued for one learner, compared with the rest of the cohort.

This service includes a check on the following:

  • all parts of the test have been marked
  • the totalling of marks
  • the recording of marks
  • the application of any adjustments
  • the application of grade thresholds.


Post-results service 2 is a re-mark of the task, with an SLA of 30 days after the request has been acknowledged. This service costs £27.

This service will include:

• a clerical re-check (EAR1)
• a review of marking of the components of the exam by a senior examiner.

When can the learners resit unit 1 for NQF BTEC First Award in Travel and Tourism?

The next assessment for Unit 1 NQF BTEC First in Travel and Tourism will be January 2015. They can also resit in June 2015 or both.

How many times can they resit?

At the moment you can resit an external unit as many times as you wish.

How much does it cost?

From September 2013, the cost of a resit for the NQF BTEC First in Travel and Tourim externally assessed unit will be £13.85.

What support is available to me?

The Lead Examiner report will be available on the qualification page on results day.

See our training page for events in the autumn term.

To allow time for Enquiries About Results services for the externally assessed components of the qualification, certificates will be sent at the same time as GCE/GCSE certificates to arrive in centres before 31 October.

I hope you have found this update useful. Should you wish to discuss this or anything else further, please feel free to contact me.
