ResultsPlus - our online results analysis tool

ResultsPlus is our free online results analysis tool, that gives you a detailed breakdown of your students’ performance in Pearson Edexcel exams.

It provides you with the most detailed analysis available of your students’ performance. ResultsPlus will help you to identify topics and skills where your students could benefit from further learning – helping them gain a deeper understanding of their subject.

Teachers can sign into ResultsPlus using their Edexcel Online username and password if their account profile has ResultsPlus access granted by the Exams Officer. 

Examiner Reports can be obtained from ResultsPlus on results day by following the steps below:

  • Log into Results Plus using your Edexcel Online details
  • Once you are logged in under your centre, select 'ResultsPlus Analysis'.
  • Then select 'Whole cohort results' followed by 'Cohort paper analysis'.
  • Select the relevant qualification and series, eg 'GCSE' and 'June 2024', followed by the relevant subject and 'View paper analysis'.
  • Select 'Exam docs' and you will find the Examiner Report for that component.

Access to Scripts

You can also use our free Access to Scripts service to view your candidates’ marked exam scripts online or download as a PDF. It is available from results day until the 13 December 2024.

Providing a rich source of information, you can use this service to help make decisions about requesting a review of marking, but it can also help inform future teaching and learning and gives insights and visibility that performance data alone cannot provide. 

If scripts have been marked ‘traditionally’ (ie not online), you will need to request them, free of charge, by 13 December 2024, via the Post Results section of Edexcel Online as in previous exam series. 

Note, you will need 'Exam viewer' in your Edexcel Online profile if you want to download candidate scripts from results day. Please ask your Exams Officer if you need this adding to your profile.

Discover more about Access to Scripts, along with FAQs and a step-by-step User Guide.

See how teachers have been using Access to Scripts

"An excellent service, we have used it to inform our teaching"

Take a look at the Access to Scripts case studies to see how a number of schools and colleges have been using this service to evaluate how their students performed in the exams, identify skills gaps, help tailor future teaching plans and to develop staff CPD.

Please note, 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.

Post-results support services

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

  • View the grade boundaries, question papers, mark schemes and examiner reports for the paper/qualification concerned.
  • View your students’ scripts using our free access to scripts service.
  • Log in to ResultsPlus to see how your students have performed on every question and compare their performance to the national average.
  • If you are still unhappy with your students' results, you may apply for a review of marking via our post-results services. 

Full details of all our post-results services are available on our website.

The deadline for requesting a Review of marking and moderation (ROMM) is 26 September 2024 for GCSE and A level (Service 1, 2 and 3). 

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 0344 463 2535 if they require guidance or watch our post results video. All applications for reviews of marking must be submitted through Edexcel Online.

Post-results support for students

We have a dedicated web page for student post-results support. Please forward this link to your students where they can find information on the services for students.

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) 30 calendar days from the receipt of the outcome of the review of marking, during which an appeal may be lodged by filling in the form below. All appeals must be submitted by the entering centre. We cannot accept appeals directly from candidates, their parents or other third parties acting on their behalf. The only exception to this is if private candidates are appealing directly without the support of the entering centre. There is further guidance on appeals on our website. 

I hope you found this update useful however please email us at TeachingReligiousStudies@pearson.com if you have any questions.
