- Requests for exam scriptsï»¿
Each of the above services are provided by passing on the exam board fee plus a small administration charge which is payable via ParentPay once the request form has been received by the Exam Office. Confirmation of fees will be available on this website once results have been issued and also provided within each candidates results pack. The request form is also attached below. It will not be possible to process any remark request for a candidate until they have provided their full written consent as it needs to be accepted that the grade can move both up and down following a remark. Advice will be readily available to assess any risk of a negative impact to the overall grade
