If you are a student and believe that your exam results are incorrect, you should talk to your teacher or British Council colleague. If your teacher agrees that you should request a re-mark, you will need to contact the British Council within 1 month from online results issuance. You will have to pay a re-marking fee.
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.
