Appeals Process – Additional Information

Summer 2021

Stage 1 – Centre Review

What is a Stage 1 Centre Review?

After you receive your results, a Stage 1 Centre Review means that you can ask Chilwell School to check whether it made a procedural error, an administrative error, or both.

  • A procedural error means a failure to follow the process set out in the centre policy.
  • An administrative error means an error in recording your grade or submitting your grade to the awarding organisation.

You must request a Stage 1 Centre Review before you can request a Stage 2 Awarding Organisation Appeal. This is so the awarding organisation is certain that your grade is as the centre intended.

You must be aware that there are three possible outcomes to a Stage 1 Centre Review:

• Your original grade is lowered.

• Your original grade is confirmed.

• Your original grade is raised.

Once a finding has been made you cannot withdraw your request for a centre review or appeal. If your grade has been lowered, you will not be able to revert to the original grade you received on results day.

How do I apply for a Stage 1 Centre Review?

You must complete the Stage 1 Centre Review Form (Online Google Form) in full. The form can be found at the bottom of this page.

What is the deadline for requesting a Stage 1 Centre Review?

Priority Appeal – 16th August 2021

Standard Appeal – 3rd September 2021

You can only request a priority appeal if your university or college place is dependent on the outcome of this review. You will be required to give your UCAS number to confirm your eligibility for a priority appeal.

What happens next?

On receipt of your completed Stage 1 Form, Chilwell School will complete a Centre Review and inform you of the outcome.

We will deal with priority appeals first, processing them in the order in which they were submitted. The outcomes of all Stage 1 Priority Appeals will be issued by 18th August 2021, at the latest.

Standard appeal will be processed in the order in which they were submitted. The outcomes of all Stage 1 Standard Appeals will be issued by 10th September 2021, at the latest.

If following the outcome of the Stage 1 Centre Review, you still believe there is an error with your grade, you can move to a Stage 2 appeal and ask the awarding organisation to check whether the centre made a procedural error - or whether the awarding organisation itself made an administrative error. You can also ask the awarding organisation to check whether the academic judgement of the centre was unreasonable, either in the selection of evidence or the determination of your grade. This will require the completion of a Stage 2 Awarding Organisation Appeal form.

Stage 2 – Awarding Organisation Appeal

What is a Stage 2 Awarding Organisation Appeal?

After you receive the outcome of the Stage 1 appeal, you may still believe there is an error with your grade/s. If this is the case, you must complete and submit another form for a Stage 2 – Awarding Organisation Appeal if you believe one or more of the following:

  • Chilwell School did not follow its procedure properly or consistently in arriving at the result, or during the centre review.
  • The awarding organisation made an administrative error in relation to the result.
  • Chilwell School made an unreasonable exercise of academic judgement in the choice of evidence from which to determine the grade and/or the determination of that grade from the evidence.

You must be aware that there are three possible outcomes to a Stage 2 Awarding Organisation Appeal:

• Your original grade is lowered.

• Your original grade is confirmed.

• Your original grade is raised.

Once a finding has been made you cannot withdraw your request for a centre review or appeal. If your grade has been lowered, you will not be able to revert to the original grade you received on results day.

How do I apply for a Stage 2 Awarding Organisation Appeal?

You must complete the Stage 2 Awarding Organisation Appeal Form (Online Google Form) in full. The form can be found at the bottom of this page.

What is the deadlines for requesting a Stage 2 review?

Priority Appeal – 19th August 2021

Standard Appeal – 13th September 2021

You can only request a priority appeal if your university or college place is dependent on the outcome of this review. You will be required to give your UCAS number to confirm your eligibility for a priority appeal.

What happens next?

On receipt of your completed Stage 2 form, Chilwell School will submit your appeal request to the relevant awarding organisation/s. You will be informed when this has been done.

As a result of the appeal, the case will either be rejected (disallowed) or upheld (allowed) in whole or in part. The fact that an appeal has been upheld (allowed) will not necessarily result in a grade change for the student.

Chilwell School will advise the student on the outcome of stage 2 and next steps.
