Ofqual have confirmed that students cannot challenge their individual centre assessment grades this year, as any appeal would have to be undertaken by someone better placed than your teachers to judge your likely grade if assessments had taken place.

In the unique circumstance of this summer, Ofqual do not believe there is any such person.
However, if you or others have concerns about bias, discrimination or any other factor that suggests that a school or college did not behave with care or integrity when determining the centre assessment grade and/or rank order information then these should be raised with your school or college first.
