Advice and Guidance for level 3 students
If you do not achieve the results required for your choice of university, the college’s guidance team will be present at Tameside College, Beaufort Road and at Clarendon Sixth Form, Camp Street on Tuesday 10th August from 9:30am.
Please only come into college if you require support with your UCAS application or need urgent guidance.
Due to social distancing restrictions, please only bring one other adult into college with you if you wish to be accompanied.
If prior to that date you have any concerns, then please remember that you can contact reception in order to arrange an appointment with a member of the student services team.
If you believe an error has been made in determining your grade, you will have a right to appeal teacher assessed grades. There are two stages to the appeals process:
Stage 1: Centre Review
If you don’t think you have been issued with the correct grade, you can appeal to the college, who will review whether they:
- made an administrative error, e.g. they submitted an incorrect grade; they used an incorrect assessment mark when determining your grade.
- did not apply a procedure correctly, e.g. they did not follow their Centre Policy, did not undertake internal quality assurance, did not take account of access arrangements or mitigating circumstances, such as illness.
To help you decide whether to appeal, you can request that the college shares with you the following information on results day if not before:
- The Centre Policy
- the sources of evidence used to determine your grade along with any grades/marks associated with them
- details of any special circumstances that have been taken into account in determining your grade, e.g. access arrangements, mitigating circumstances such as illness
Stage 2: Appeal to the Exam board/Awarding Organisation
If you still don’t think you have the correct grade after the Centre Review is complete, you can ask the college to appeal to the exam board/awarding organisation, who will review whether:
- The college made an unreasonable exercise of academic judgement1 in the choice of evidence from which they determined your grade and/or in the determination of your grade from that evidence.
- The college did not apply a procedure correctly, e.g. did not follow the Centre Policy, did not undertake internal quality assurance, did not take account of access arrangements or mitigating circumstances, such as illness.
- the exam board made an administrative error, e.g. they changed your grade during the processing of grades.
At both stages of the process you will need to submit your request/appeal on the APPEAL FORM to the college and give them your written consent to conduct the appeal or submit it to the exam board on your behalf. Please read the information in the form, complete the form below and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org by 13th August 2021 for a priority appeal or by 3 September 2021 for a non priority appeal
If you request a centre review or an awarding organisation appeal there are three possible outcomes:
- Your original grade is lowered, so your final grade will be lower than the original grade you received.
- Your original grade is confirmed, so there is no change to your grade.
- Your original grade is raised, so your final grade will be higher than the original grade you received.
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 back to the original grade you received on results day
