Free access to scripts service

From 23 August 2018 until 14 December 2018, you will be able to view and download scripts which have been marked online free of charge from our Self-Service Portal.

Access to scripts user guide

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.

Please note that these scripts do not contain examiners' annotations.

If scripts have been marked ‘traditionally’ (i.e. not online), you will need 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

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.

How to apply for post-results services

Please speak to your exams officer if you wish to proceed with a review of marking. Exams officers should contact their Centre Account Specialist on 0844 463 2535 if they require guidance or view the video tutorial below. All applications for reviews of marking must be submitted through Edexcel Online.

Why are reviews of marking results sometimes received very quickly?

Senior examiners who carry out reviews of marking are re-trained prior to commencing reviews. As soon as you submit a request for a review of marking on Edexcel Online, the script is sent to the allocated senior examiner electronically. If they are sitting at their desk, they could receive the script and start reviewing it within minutes of your request.

Understanding more about the quality and accuracy of marking

99.2% of our grades were accurate in summer 2017. Please have a look at this webpage if you’d like to find out more about how we ensure that our marking is fair and accurate.

Appeals

If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of a review of marking, you may wish to appeal against the decision. 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 review of marking, during which an appeal may be lodged by writing to the following address:

Edexcel Appeals Office
One90 High Holborn
London
WC1V 7BH

or by email to edexcelappeals@pearson.com.

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.

Certificates

These will be sent by 7 November 2018.

Understanding 9-1 grades

View our help page for 9-1 grades

Exam feedback training and exemplars

In autumn 2018, we will be providing recorded exam feedback training on 9-1 International GCSEs. We will also provide new exemplars from summer 2018 for 9-1 International GCSE English Language and Literature.

Resits

The next assessment opportunity for International GCSE is in January 2019.

Entry deadline: 12 October 2018.

Submission deadline for January 2019 coursework marks and sample; and spoken language endorsement marks and sample (4EA1 & 4EB1 only, optional): 10 January 2019.

Access to January 2019 exam timetable

Entry codes are in the information manual. The 2018-2019 manual will be published by 1 September 2018.

9-1 International GCSEs

These are linear qualifications. Students must resit both papers. If they have taken the coursework option, they can carry forward their 4EA1 03 or 4ET1 03 marks and resit the 4EA1 01 or 4ET1 01 exam. There is no carry forward of coursework marks from the legacy to the 9-1 International GCSE.

A*-G legacy international GCSEs (non-UK students only)

January 2019 is the last ever opportunity to sit 4EA0, 4EB0 and 4ET0 for non-UK students. These are linear qualifications. Students must resit both papers. If they have taken the coursework option, they can carry forward their 4EA0 03 (and/or 4EA0 04) or 4ET0 03 marks and resit the exam. There is no carry forward of coursework marks from the legacy to the 9-1 International GCSE.

I wish you, your students and their parents the best of luck on results day and I look forward to supporting you in 2018-2019.

Best wishes
