Appeals

It is our aim to treat each case fairly and consistently. However, if you disagree with a decision we have made, you can appeal against that decision.

There are three stages:

  1. Enquiry – Stage 1
  2. Appeal – Stage 2
  3. Independent Appeals Board – Stage 3

Stage 1 - Enquiries

A centre can ask for a candidate’s exam result to be reviewed, alternatively a candidate can request this directly. City & Guilds will arrange for the candidate’s answers to be remarked.

In the case of assessment decisions made by centres, candidates must go through the centre’s own internal appeals procedure.

A centre can request an Enquiry into the Qualification Approval Risk Status/ Qualification Status that has been applied by City & Guilds following external quality assurance activities.
