Result Enquiries and Special Consideration

Information on RAD result enquiries and special considerations.

Result Enquiries

Candidates, teachers and customers can request a result enquiry for RAD exams.

This includes a clerical check and a written report with details on the results awarded. For this service, a fee of $60 per candidate will be charged.

A result enquiry takes around 40 working days to process, and the application needs to be made within 10 days of the result being received. Result enquiries made after this time will not normally be accepted.

All appeals will be charged at £65, refundable if the appeal is upheld.

Special Consideration

A ‘special consideration’ is a post-examination adjustment to the mark for a candidate who was prepared for and present at an exam, but who may have been disadvantaged by adverse circumstances that arose immediately before or at the time.

Special consideration cannot give the candidate an unfair advantage, nor must it cause misunderstanding about a candidate’s achievements. Exams and assessments are a measure of what a candidate can do at one moment in time and therefore, only minor adjustments can be made to the mark, to protect the integrity of the award.

Award Decision

The decision to award special consideration will be based on a number of factors, which will vary for each application. The size of the allowance will depend on the timing, nature and extent of the circumstances. The maximum allowance will be five marks. Full details can be found in the reasonable adjustments and special consideration policies and procedures.

Applications should be made within five working days of the exam by downloading the form and returning it to
