Edexcel Functional Skills
If you're not happy with your Functional Skills 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 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?|
|Review of marking (EAR2)||Up to 20 days|
|Clerical check (EAR1)
||Up to 10 days|
Can I resit my exam?
Yes. There is no limit to the number of times you can take an Edexcel Functional Skills assessment but your school or college may charge you for each attempt.
If you’re not successful in one of our paper-based exam windows, you can take the exam in one of the next available exam windows.
On-demand (online) exams can be taken at any point in the year by arrangement with your exams officer. Registered learners can be booked onto the onscreen test at any time up until 2 hours beforehand.
