Results Enquiries

Enquiries can be made regarding a result. Contact the exam centre no later than 2 weeks after the release of the online results to find out the fees and procedures for Stage 1 and Stage 2.

Important information concerning Stage 1:

Stage 1 - Clerical Re-Check

It is generally limited to checking that marks have been correctly calculated and recorded.

A clerical re-check consists of the following:

  • a re-check that all parts of the script have been marked
  • a re-check that the marks on the scripts have been correctly totalled
  • a re-check that the total mark for each component has been correctly recorded in the computer system
  • a re-check that any examiner adjustments, if applicable, have been correctly applied
  • a re-check on the application of grade thresholds
  • a re-check as to whether any allowances, e.g. special consideration, have been applied

It should be noted that a Stage 1 clerical re-check is NOT a re-marking of the exam papers and that it is extremely rare for such enquiries to lead to a change in the result for the following reasons:

  • The majority of papers in Cambridge English examinations are either machine-marked or clerically-marked with and additional DOUBLE check.
  • Examiner-marked papers are typically marked twice and, in borderline or disputed cases, marked three or four times.
Stage 2 - Re-mark
