In simple terms schools have used the data they hold on students, plus the teacher's professional judgement about the most likely grade to be achieved this summer. OFQUAL and the Examination boards have then applied an algorithm to adjust these school grades either up or down based upon the school's past performance. You can find out more detail in the OFQUAL guide to this summer's results.
The OFQUAL Guide above contains information about appeals but the short answer is NO. Only schools can appeal to the examination board on your behalf on administrative grounds e.g. you think that someone entered your data incorrectly and you have evidence to support this. Once you receive your results IF you feel an administrative error has occured you should firstly e mail your teacher and Head of Department for their view. The Head of Department will be the person who will recommend that the school submits an appeal on your behalf. The DfE have announced today that Mock Results will form part of the appeal process but no details have been issued to schools about how this will work in practice.
If you disagree with the school's decision not to appeal then you can apply for an internal school review using the form below and Mr Hunkin and Mrs Gaunt will review the information the school holds against the examination board information.
n.b. OFQUAL have decided that students cannot appeal the grades or ranking submitted by the school. [please read the OFQUAL Guide above]
