Who is eligible for the service?

Students are eligible if their final grade is based on materials marked by SQA.

The final decision on whether to submit a Post-results Services request lies with the Argyll College Curriculum Lead or Head of Curriculum and the Quality Officer. SQA cannot accept requests from students or parents/carers.

There are 2 basic elements to the Post-Results Service – they are clerical check and marking review:

clerical check?

A clerical check makes sure that:

  • all parts of the materials have been marked
  • the marks given for each answer have been totalled correctly

marking review?

A marking review makes sure that:

  • all parts of the materials have been marked
  • the marking is in line with the national standard
  • the marks given for each answer have been totalled correctly
  • the correct result has been entered

A priority marking review can be requested if the student requires a result to secure a conditional place at university or college.
