How to appeal an exam result

It is our aim to treat each case fairly and consistently. However, if you disagree with a decision we have made regarding your examination result, you can appeal it.

City & Guilds Qualified logo

The City & Guilds Qualified logo is available to learners who have achieved a Level 2 City & Guilds (including NPTC) qualification or higher. The logo includes a descriptor that shows the level of the qualification you have achieved.

The level descriptor is a recent addition that safeguards consumers against the level of expertise they can expect to receive from a tradesman as well as allowing learners to become more competitive by completing qualifications of a higher level.
