Priority copy of marked paper (access to scripts)

This is a copy of the marked exam paper that you can use to decide whether to request a review of marking or clerical re-check.

Don’t do this if a student’s university place is pending. Go straight to priority review of marking instead.

(Priority reviews of marking are not available in the November 2020, January 2021 or March 2021 exam series)

You can only request this for:

  • AS, A-level
  • GCSE
  • FSMQ
  • AQA Certificate Level 3 Applied General qualifications.

Priority copies aren't available for some externally assessed units, but you can request the candidate record form or marking grid instead.


The fee for this service is £8.65
