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.

Can I get my coursework mark reviewed?
It's not normally possible for you to ask us to look at your coursework again.
Can I resit an exam/resubmit coursework for an Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 Certificate?
You can retake any Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 Certificate by resitting all of the exams. This means that if you had to take two exams when you first completed your course, you'll need to resit both papers in the same exam session in order to get a new grade.
The rules for resubmitting coursework vary by subject so you'll need to check with your teacher to see whether you can improve your existing work or will need to complete a different task.
Most Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 Certificates are assessed in January and June exam sessions. You can find exam dates by checking our exam timetables or by speaking to your exams officer.
There is a charge for taking our exams and you'll need to check with your exams officer to see if your school will pay for you to redo a course. If you have to pay the entry fee yourself, you can find out what we charge your centre on the fees page. However, please be aware that many schools and colleges will charge an administration cost on top of our fee.
