Priority copy of marked paper (access to scripts)

Post-results services not available in summer 2021

There will not be normal post-results services in summer 2021, except for Functional Skills where some exams have gone ahead.

If you’re unhappy with your results, see our page on Appeals for Summer 2021.

This is a photocopy 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.

You can only request this for:

  • AS, A-level
  • GCSE
  • FSMQ
  • Level 3 Tech-level qualifications
  • 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 £14.35
