Your school or college submitted the grades it believes you were most likely to achieve if exams had gone ahead. We know many students wanted to be able
to challenge their centre assessment grades if they were unhappy with them, but we judged this could not be done consistently and fairly. Any appeal would
have to be decided by someone better placed than your teachers to judge your likely grade if exams had taken place. Because exams were cancelled, we don’t
think there is such a person. This means you can’t appeal your grade just because you don’t agree with the centre assessment grade submitted by your
school or college.

Your school or college can’t appeal against the centre assessment grades that they decided were correct when they submitted it to the exam board. The head
of centre made a declaration to confirm that the centre assessment grades it provided were the grades its students were most likely to have received if the
exams had gone ahead.

If you’d like an opportunity to improve your grade, you can choose to sit exams in the autumn, or in summer 2021, instead. If you have concerns about bias,
discrimination or something else that suggests that your school or college did not behave with care or integrity when determining your centre assessment
grade, see ‘student guide to appeals, malpractice & maladministration complaints’.
