Government confirms that all appeals of A and AS level and GCSE results will be free for schools and colleges

Sub-theme: Education

Summary

The government confirms that all appeals of A and AS level and GCSE results will be free for schools and colleges. This will include both successful and unsuccessful appeals. Schools and colleges can now claim back unsuccessful appeal costs at the same time as claiming back fees for autumn exams. A 'Gold Command' task force has been set up and will meet daily between now and 7 September to 'ensure appeals are being processed quickly'. Education Secretary Gavin Williamson says, 'I know that alongside the success of so many young people, there have been some difficult cases. I have said repeatedly that my absolute priority is fairness for students, and I do not want anything holding them back from achieving the grades they deserve. So all result appeals for state-funded schools and colleges will be free, helping to make sure every single student has the best possible chance of securing the grades they need in order to take their next step.'
