Free access to scripts service
From Results days until 16 December 2022, you will be able to view and download scripts which have been marked online free of charge using our Access to Scripts service.
The Portal can only be accessed by Edexcel Online users who have the Exam Viewer profile ticked on Edexcel Online. Exams officers give teachers access to Exam Viewer.
Scripts do not have examiner annotation on them. The marked script allows teachers to evaluate how the student performed on particular questions in relation to what they have been taught; the Principal Examiner's report and the exemplars that we make available demonstrate how the mark scheme is applied.
If scripts have been marked ‘traditionally’ (i.e. not online), you will need to request them, free of charge, by 16 December 2022, via the Post Results section of Edexcel Online as in previous exam series.
Candidate consent is required before requesting script copies, as per section 4.2 of the JCQ's Post-results services guide. Candidate consent can only be obtained after results have been published.
ResultsPlus is a free online results analysis tool for teachers that gives you a detailed breakdown of your students’ performance in Pearson Edexcel exams. It provides the most detailed analysis available of your students’ performance and helps you to identify topics and skills where your students could benefit from further learning, helping them gain a deeper understanding of their subject.
Moderator reports for Component 1
From results day you can download centre-specific moderator feedback for the Non-Examined Assessment (NEA) component of the qualification i.e. Component 1. To find out how to do this please read the guidance below.
Your moderator writes a report to explain where it was necessary to adjust your centre’s marks. Where possible, your moderator advises you on how you could make improvements for future series.
You can find these on Edexcel Online. Please speak to your examinations officer if you don't have access to Edexcel Online.
Watch our short video on how to find your Moderator Report.
Principal Moderator and Examiner Reports
The Principal Moderator and Examiner also compile reports on how candidates performed this year. They provide general feedback and highlight good approaches that can be taken forward to future examination series.
You can find these reports on the qualification page and also on ResultsPlus. Please speak to your examinations officer if you don't have access to ResultsPlus.
