Post-results services for our BTEC Firsts (NQF) and BTEC Nationals (NQF) by subject
Can I get the marking of my exam paper checked?
Yes. Quality assurance procedures are in place throughout every stage of the exam cycle, but if you're concerned that your grade is wrong, you can ask us to perform additional checks.
If you'd like to request one of our 'Enquiries about results' (EAR) services, you'll need to speak to the exams officer at your school or college, who will ask us to review the marking of your question paper on your behalf.
When will I get the result?
The table below shows when you can expect an outcome. For information about deadlines and fees, see:
|Service||How long will it take?|
|Priority review of marking (EAR2P)

Can I get my internally assessed assignments re-marked?
All of our approved schools, colleges and training providers are required to have an internal appeals process which sets out what you need to do if you disagree with a mark you’ve been issued by your teacher or tutor and the steps they will take to address your concerns or justify their marking.
Can I resit an externally assessed unit?
Yes but you can only resit the externally assessed unit for BTEC Level 3 Nationals in Children's Play, Learning and Development up to twice after the initial assessment.
