This page has been created to support students of KIH/MOS when they receive their IGCSE/AS/A level results. Below you will find guidance and support on how to manage these results

As you will be aware, the AS/A level results for the June 2023 exam series will be released over the next two weeks.

Please note that not all AS/A level results are released on the same day:

  • Cambridge International AS/A level results will be released on Thursday 10th August, before 0900 (UK time)
  • AQA/Edexcel/OCR AS/A Level results will be released Thursday 17th August, before 1000 (UK time)
  • Edexcel IAL results will also be released on Thursday 17th August, before 1000 (UK time)

You will need to contact the exam centre where you sat your exams, or where your exam entries were processed. For instance, if King’s InterHigh made your exam entries and then transferred you to a local exam centre, King’s InterHigh will have your results. This should be the case if you took UK A Level Media, UK GCSE Film Studies or UK A Level Sciences – Biology, Chemistry, Physics.

King’s InterHigh will also provide you with your results if you sat your exams at our exam centre in Abergavenny, South Wales. In all other cases, you would need to contact your exam centre directly. They should be able to send you your results via post or email.

On each of the Results Days, from 0900 UK time, King’s InterHigh have their own Exam Support Room where you can speak/chat to a member of KIH’s education/exams team. Here you will be able to discuss:

  • Appeals
  • Resits
  • UCAS/Clearing

Results Day FAQs 

If you are not satisfied with your grade or you are surprised by the outcome and would like your grade(s) to be reviewed, the exam boards offer the following services:

  • Access to Script – you will be able to request access to your marked script via your entering centre
  • Clerical check – checking the paper has been marked completely and the grade boundary has been applied accurately
  • Review of marking – this includes the clerical check and a review of the marking by a senior examiner
  • Priority review of marking – the same as above, but a faster service, which costs more but is useful if you need the results back quickly for a college/university application.

Please note that there will be a fee for all of the above services, ranging between £15-£70 per exam paper. You will be able to claim a refund if your grade changes as a result of the review, e.g a ‘B’ to and ‘A’.

If you would like to request any of the above services, you must contact the exam centre where you sat the exams, or where your exam entries were made and request they make the review of marking application to the exam board.
