To assist private candidates with EAR process, please follow the directions mentioned in the EAR Guide available below in downloads section.

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. 


If you are a school candidate, please contact your school for EAR process. We do not accept applications from school candidates privately.

If you are a private candidate, you should contact the British Council within one week 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 our website and courier us your original certificate at British Council, British Deputy High Commission, Shahrah-e-Iran, Block 5, Clifton, Karachi, Sindh, 75600 along with replacement of certificate form so that they can be sent to Cambridge for replacements

Kindly make sure that all refund forms and replacement certificate requests of EAR must have been sent to us within a month of the outcome received.

You may submit all EAR requests before the deadline i.e., 16 February 2024. Please note that British Council will not be able to entertain any late submissions.

Retake an exam

If you or your teachers think that you could achieve better grades, you can choose to re-take your exam. 


An exam counts as a retake if you have sat the same syllabus in previous exam session. 


If you are a school student you need to speak to your school exams co-ordinator. If you are a private student you need to provide your:

• previous centre number

• candidate number

• Statement of result

Note: the retake option may not apply to all subjects’ option. You can usually submit previously used coursework so you will only need to retake written exams. Any coursework that is resubmitted needs to meet the requirements of the syllabus in the new exam series and must be re-assessed.

Group reports

Teachers and school exams coordinators may want to order detailed reports on the exam performance of a group of candidates or a whole class of students. 

The British Council allows you to order reports for groups of up to five, up to 15, or groups of 16 and more. 

To place an order for exam reports, you will need written consent from each candidate.
