Regulations & Guidance and Information for Candidates
- It is the responsibility of all candidates to familiarise themselves with the contents of the Regulations and Guidance for Candidates Booklet
- Failure to abide by these Regulations could result in disqualification
If you have a query with your result and would like to find out more information about the grade you received, your subject teacher can help with this information initially. You can also email the exams inbox and we can provide you with information on your grade and grade boundaries.
After the release of examination results, a candidate has the right to apply to the awarding body through the Academy for a review of their result (ROR). This can take the form of:
- Service 1 - Clerical check – an administrative check that the marks have been totalled correctly.
- Service 2 - Review of marking – the script(s) will be marked again by a different examiner.
Candidates can also make a request for:
- Service 3 - Access to a photocopy of their script (primarily with a view to making a results enquiry)
- Service 4- Access to the original copy of their script (available after the results enquiry deadlines to inform future learning)
If you wish apply for any of the services above the exams team will provide you with a form to complete and inform you of the costs per service.

Progress 8 calculates how much progress students make between their results in Year 6 and their results in Year 11. It is a ‘value-added’ measure, meaning students’ results are compared to the achievements of other students with similar Year 6 results. It is called Progress 8 as it is based on the results of 8 subjects.
This is the average grade awarded over 8 subjects. For QEMS students this is 4.04 per subject so most students on average achieved a Grade 4. A Grade 4 is equivalent to a Grade C.
This is the percentages of students who achieved at least a Grade 4 in both English Language or Literature with Mathematics (standard pass). It is also measured at Grade 5 (strong pass).
This is the percentage of students who took qualifications in English, Maths, (at least) two Sciences, a Modern Foreign Language and History or Geography.
