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 'Reviews of marking and moderation' (RoMM) services previously known as '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 (Service 2)||Up to 20 days|
|Clerical check (Service 1)
||Up to 10 days|
Can I see my answers/get a copy of my marked exam paper?
For paper-based assessments at Level 1 and 2
Yes - you can ask your school or college to request we return a copy of your marked exam paper.
For onscreen on-demand and on-demand assessments
No - we are unable to return your marked exam because other learners may take this test in the future.
Your school or college may ask you to pay for these services before they submit your application. For information about deadlines and fees, see:
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.
