Enquiries About Results (EAR)/Review of Marking may be requested by Centre staff or candidates if there are reasonable grounds for believing there has been an error in marking.  The school must have Candidates written consent for a remark application to be processed. All enquiries about results must be referred to the Exam Officer via email  The Exam Officer will then forward the request to the subject teacher/department in the first instance so that they can decide if there is a strong case for a remark.

An enquiry about results cannot be submitted on the basis that a candidate did not achieve their predicted grade. The candidate’s written authority is required for all reviews or script viewing. If a result is queried, the Exams Officer, teaching staff and Head of Centre will investigate the feasibility of asking for a review at the Centre’s expense. In cases of enquiries about results, where the school does not uphold a request for such an enquiry, the student will normally be asked to pay to have an enquiry carried out. It must be remembered that the outcome of a review may mean results can go down, stay the same or go up.

The internal deadline for candidates to request a review is Wednesday 4th September 2024. The exam board deadline for enquiries about results is to be confirmed.

All queries must be sent to before the internal deadline date.


Certificates are issued by the exam board if you achieve grade A* to G or 9-1 at GCSE, or a pass or higher in level 2 qualifications.

Certificates are printed by the exam board in October and will be distributed to candidates at the Presentation Evening in November/December.  Invitations for Presentation Evening will be sent to students and their parents/carers with full details of the Presentation Evening Event nearer the time.

Students who are unable to attend Presentation Evening will be able to collect their certificates from the school office or request for them to be posted by secure means after Presentation Evening has taken place.

Certificates will not be given to anyone other than the candidate without the candidate’s written authorisation.

It is important that you look after your certificates and keep them in a safe place as future colleges and employers will need to see them.

New Mills School is only obliged to keep certificates for a period of one year after issue. If candidates do not collect their certificates within this time (or if they lose their certificates) they can only be replaced by direct application to the appropriate examination boards. This will require proof of identity (such as a birth certificate) and payment of a fee per examination board. You are therefore urged to collect your certificates on Presentation Evening or as soon as possible thereafter and to keep them safe.
