Appeals summer 2021

Students’ grades have been determined by schools and colleges this year as teachers are best placed to do this. The appeals process is a critical safety net in the event that anything goes wrong to ensure that each learner has an individual right to appeal their grades via a transparent process of review. See the guidance below.

JCQ - Appeals Guidance Summer 2021

JCQ - Student Appeal Request

JCQ - Student Appeal Guide

JCQ - Student Handout

Please note, you will be expected to write a short (up to 5000 characters) explanation for the appeal. You might therefore like to think about what you'd like to say before you start, as the forms cannot be saved part of the way through.
