Teams of examiners assess every exam paper. They are specialists in their subjects, and follow a strict marking scheme. Principal examiners oversee the process to make sure that grades are awarded fairly.
If a student is awarded a grade that differs significantly from their teacher’s prediction or comparative performance, their exam is automatically re-checked and often re-graded. Borderline grades are also re-marked to ensure the grade is fair.
The exam marking process is carefully designed to be fair to all students. However, if you feel that your exam result does not represent your work, you can ask to have your paper re-marked.
Request a re-mark
If you are a school student and believe that your exam results are incorrect, you should contact us.
Please note that all remarking requests should be submitted to the British Council front desk a month from the date of publication of results and should be paid in cash or by debit/credit card.
Enquiry forms about results can be collected from the British Council office.
Remember: your grade and mark may be lowered, confirmed or raised following the enquiry. If your grade is raised, you may be entitled to a full refund for this service.
