The centre will inform candidates of their centre assessed marks as a candidate is allowed to request a review of the centre’s marking before marks are submitted to the awarding body.
Any review must be undertaken before marks are submitted to the awarding body. Sufficient time will be given to candidates in order to allow them to review copies of material, as necessary, and reach a decision. The centre will also allow sufficient time for the review to be carried out, to make any necessary changes to marks and to inform the candidate of the outcome, all before the awarding body’s deadline.
