All candidates will receive a Statement of Results three to four weeks after sitting the exam. These are available on-line from the candidate support website, or are issued by the centre where they took the exam. Certificates are issued within three months of sitting the exam.

The Statement of Results gives information about individual paper performance and a new overall score as well as the overall grade (YLE candidates do not get an overall grade).

Individual paper performance is not provided for those candidates with grade X (absent from part of the examination), grade Z (absent from all of the examination), or PENDING (result to follow).

Candidates’ answers and other work done by candidates as part of an examination will not be released to candidates, schools or centres.

Results Enquiry and Appeals

If a school or candidate believes that a result is incorrect, they can request a Results Enquiry. This must be submitted through the centre where they took the exam. More information about Enquiries and Appeals Procedures.
