Edexcel Digital Applications (CiDA and DiDA)
If you're not happy with your Digital Applications (CiDA and DiDA) results, there are several options available to you. Find out about our review of marking service and how to get a copy of your exam paper, and read the answers to FAQs about post-results services.
Can I get the marking of my Unit 1 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.
Can I get my work back?
You can ask your school or college to return your eportfolio once results have been released.
Due to the nature of the Unit 1 exam, it's not possible for us to return your marked work for this unit.
Can I get my eportfolio re-marked?
It's not normally possible for you to ask us to look at your eportfolio again.
The mark on your results slip is a UMS mark and won't be the same as the raw mark your teacher gave you.
Find out more about raw and UMS marks.
If you think that the raw mark you've been given is different from the mark your teacher gave you, please check with your teacher to see what happened to marks during moderation. Occasionally we adjust marks during moderation to bring marking in line with other schools. If we adjusted your mark, your teacher will need to decide if they want to send back all of the work from your school or college for remoderation.
If we didn't adjust your mark, talk to your teacher or exams officer and they’ll get in touch with us.
We can't remoderate an individual piece of eportfolio or any work where we didn't change your teacher's original mark. We can only remoderate if we changed the marks given by your teacher, but it's up to your school to decide whether it requests this.
Your school or college should base its decision on what is best for the majority of students. If your school has decided not to submit eportfolios for remoderation, you will need to discuss this directly with them, as we can’t overturn their decision.
When we receive a request for remoderation, we will moderate the eportfolios for all students originally entered at your school or college for a second time. This means that we will request the same sample of marking and the moderation of the work will be reviewed by a senior moderator.
Any changes we make to grades during remoderation may affect all students who submitted work.
The rules around marking, moderation and remoderation of coursework and controlled assessments are agreed jointly by the major UK awarding organisations. They are in place to ensure that all students are treated equally, regardless of the awarding organisation used for their subject.
Can I resubmit my eportfolio/resit the exam?
It may be possible for you to improve your existing work and resubmit your eportfolio but it will depend on which summative project brief you've completed. Your teacher will be able to advise you on whether it will be possible to improve your existing work or if you'll need to complete a different task.
There is no limit to the number of times you can resit the practical exam.
