Summer 2018 examination materials

The question papers and mark schemes from this summer's assessments are available to download online now. Examiner reports will be available to download from results day.

Moderator Report (E9)

From results day, you can download centre specific moderator feedback for all your coursework and controlled assessment units/components. Your moderator writes a report to provide feedback on your marking and administration. If it was necessary to adjust your centre’s marks, the moderator will explain why in this report. Where possible, your moderator advises you on how you could make improvements for future series.

You can download the reports on results day from Edexcel Online. Please speak to your examinations officer if you don't have access to Edexcel Online.

Please note: if you do not have access to the 'results' tab in your Edexcel Online profile, you will not be able to download your E9 moderator report. In this instance, please ask your examinations officer to change your profile.

Watch our short video on how to find your Moderator Report.

ResultsPlus

ResultsPlus is a free online results analysis tool for teachers that gives you a detailed breakdown of your students’ performance in Edexcel exams. It provides 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.

Principal moderator/examiner report

The principal moderator or examiner also compiles a report on how candidates performed in this year’s examinations. It provides general feedback and highlights good approaches that can be taken forward to future examination series.

You can find these reports on ResultsPlus and on the relevant qualification page a few days after results day. Please speak to your examinations officer if you don't have access to ResultsPlus.

Access To Scripts

After the summer 2018 results are published in August, centres will be able to view and download scripts which have been marked online free of charge from our self-service portal via Edexcel Online.

The Self-Service Portal will be available until the final post-results deadline for each exam series:

  • Summer 2018 - Thursday 27 September 2018

Teachers should save and/or print any scripts they need for teaching and learning purposes before the post-results deadline.

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), centres will have to request them via the Post Results section of Edexcel Online as in previous exam series.

These scripts will also be free of charge, but the final dates to request them are the same as the published JCQ Access to Scripts deadlines.

Please note: candidates' consent must be sought by the centre before viewing scripts. This can only be obtained from results day, and not before that point. 

Visit the 'Access to scripts' pages

For A level Drama (9DR0/02) and GCSE 9 to 1 Drama (1DR0/02), we will only accept EAR applications if a recording of the performance was supplied to the examiner within 7 working days of the performance. If this wasn't the case, we will cancel and close your EAR request.

DVDs must have been formatted as playable in a domestic DVD player, in line with the requirements in the Administrative support guides. 

Post results fees

Details of all updated fees for our post results services  from 1 August 2018 can be found online.
