Summer 2015 moderator reports and enquiries about results

Did you know that from results day, you can download centre-specific moderator feedback for all your coursework and controlled assessment units?

If you have submitted coursework or controlled assessments in the summer 2015 series, your moderator will have written a report which will provide you with general feedback on your marking and administration.

1. To download your report go to and sign in using your Edexcel Online username and password. If you've forgotten your password you can generate a reminder from Edexcel Online by selecting 'forgotten password'.

2. Once you're logged in under your centre, select the relevant qualification (for example, GCSE) from the top left-hand menu.

3. Then click on the 'Results' tab on the left-hand side of the page and select 'Moderator Reports'.

If you do not have access to 'Results' in your Edexcel Online profile then you will not see the 'Results' tab. In this instance please ask your exams officer to change your profile or email us at providing your centre number.

4. Now select the relevant examination series, your subject and press 'Submit'. You will get a message saying the report will be in your 'mailbox' in two hours. The report normally takes only five minutes to appear in your mailbox.

Your moderator will have written a detailed report for you, highlighting good practice and, using the assessment criteria, explaining if it was necessary to adjust your centre's marks.

You can also download the Principal Moderator Report which contains detailed advice and guidance on each coursework and controlled assessment unit.

Principal Moderator Reports are available on ResultsPlus from results day. They will also be available on the respective qualifications pages from 13 August for A level Drama and 20 August for GCSE Drama.

Enquiries about results (EAR)

If you're not happy with your students' results this summer, you should take the following steps:

  • Log in to Edexcel Online for an instant and detailed analysis of your students' exam performance. 
  • Download a copy of the relevant Principal Examiner's Report on results day. The summer 2015 question papers and mark schemes are already available to download from the relevant qualification pages. GCE examiners' reports will be uploaded onto the qualification page on 13 August 2015 and GCSE examiners' reports will be uploaded on 20 August 2015. Find out how to download Principal Examiner's Reports from ResultsPlus.
  • If, having checked Edexcel Oline and the relevant mark schemes and examiners' reports, you're still unhappy with your students' results, you may apply for an enquiry about results via our post-results services. Find everything you need to know about Results Day and post-results services. 
  • Remember that the last date for us to receive applications for EAR review of marking services is 20 September 2015. The deadline for requesting a Priority Service 2 review of marking (GCE only, where a student's place in further/higher education depends on the outcome) is 21 August 2015.

Post-results review of moderation of internally assessed / externally moderated coursework

This service is not available to individual candidates and the outcome will affect the whole cohort. The service is not available if the original centre marks were accepted. The original sample must be sent to us within three days of the request. Work must be kept in secure conditions and not returned to candidates.

Teachers are strongly advised to download their individual centre's E9 Moderator Report from Edexcel Online, as well as their Principal Examiner's Report for the relevant internally assessed component, before proceeding with this service.

We will allow the head of centre (or designated member of the centre’s senior management team or examinations manager) 14 calendar days from the receipt of the outcome of the EAR, during which an appeal may be lodged by writing to the following address:

We cannot accept appeals directly from candidates, their parents or other third parties acting on their behalf. However, private candidates may appeal directly without the support of the entering centre.
