Post-Results Service (Appeals) Policy

If you are considering an appeal against your grades it is vital that you read the information available by clicking the buttons below. 

It is important to note that 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 issued on results day.

The College has set up a dedicated e-mail address for all appeals, results2021@methody.org and there are clear instructions in the documents about what information you need to provide, the format to use and how to title your message.

We will be prioritising those appeals where a place in a  higher education institution is on hold, so it is important that appeals requests are submitted in line with the timetable in the policy and on the summary sheet.

Exam Certificates

It is the pupil's responsibility to collect their exam certificates when they become available [usually from end of October onwards for exams sat in the summer term]. They will NOT be posted out to the pupil as we require the certificates to be signed for. Pupils at the College should collect GCSE certificates at some time during the course of their 6th form/A-Level studies. 

If a pupil leaves the College or if he/she no longer lives locally, a relative or friend can sign for the certificates: just let us know beforehand so that we can check they are here/ have them ready. Certificates will only be posted out in exceptional circumstances and the College will not take any responsibility for certificates that are lost in transit. 

If a pupil has lost their certificates, the College cannot replace them and does not have copies. They will need to contact the relevant exam boards to order replacement certificates. Request Exam Certificate
