Appeals

Stage 1: You must first request a centre review for of your grade – You should submit a request for a centre review by 16 August 2021 for a priority appeal, or by 3 September 2021 for non-priority appeals.

Stage 2: The examination board deadline to submit a priority appeal is 23 August, 2021 (for students applying to higher education who did not get their first choice) or 17 September, 2021 for other appeals. However you must submit your stage 2 appeal request to the Academy at least 5 working days prior to the above dates to allow time for processing.

NOTE: you cannot request a stage 2 request until you have completed a stage 1 review.

Priority appeals only apply to A level students who have not met the conditions of their firm choice of university. If candidates declined both offers, they are not eligible for a priority appeal.

If you are considering an appeal, please read the following Ofqual guidance carefully, with particular reference to page 9 and page 10:

Student guide to awarding: summer 2021 (publishing.service.gov.uk)

Please also read the following document:

Centre Policy for determining teacher assessed grades – summer 2021 – Whitburn Church of England Academy Centre 39445

Remember grades can go up or down in this process. Ofqual has stated that ‘A grade will only be changed if there was an error when determining or submitting the grade, or if the grade given could not have reasonably been reached based on the evidence presented.’

If, after fully reading both of the above hyperlinked documents, you still wish to appeal please contact the Assessment Office:
