Teams of examiners assess every exam paper. They are specialists in their subjects, and follow a strict marking scheme. Principal examiners oversee the process to make sure that grades are awarded fairly.
If a student is awarded a grade that differs significantly from their teacher’s prediction or comparative performance, their exam is automatically re-checked and often re-graded. Borderline grades are also remarked to ensure the grade is fair.
The exam marking process is carefully designed to be fair to all students. However, if you feel that your exam result does not represent your work, you can ask to have your paper remarked.
REQUEST A RE-MARK
If you are a school student and believe that your exam results are incorrect, please speak to your teacher and request them to apply for the remarking on your behalf within one month of your result announcement. We do not accept applications from school candidates privately.
If you are a private candidate, you should contact the British Council within one month of your result announcement.
Remember: your grade and mark may be lowered, confirmed or raised following the enquiry. If your grade is raised, you may be entitled to a full refund (excluding the Bank and British Council administration charges).
Once you have received an outcome and the results have been ‘upgraded’, you can apply for a refund of the EAR fee through the ‘Cambridge Refund Form’ available on the website.
Please also post mail us your originals along with the refund form so that they can be sent to Cambridge for replacements.
Kindly make sure that all refund forms and replacement certificate requests have been sent to us by 30 April 2019.
