Understandably, we are getting a number of questions about whether a remark would be possible.

This is now an entry about this in the Q&As:

Just to add to your remarks on re-marks in Gloucestershire (!)- it was certainly the case three years ago that a parent could request a re-mark; there was no charge for it and it was jolly quick. However the caveat was applied that should the mark go down, the lower mark would stand. It was also mentioned that only once in living memory had a mark ever been changed.

The official guidance this year, produced in an uncharacteristically funky font on the GCC website which is sadly not reproducable here, states:
Quote:
Papers are marked twice electronically by computer and manual checks are also carried out. It is highly unlikely that an error could be made in the marking of the papers. However, parents/carers can request a manual remark of their child’s test paper as part of the appeals process.

Last year I was told that the appeal process would automatically include a remark. The paperwork sent to me as part of the schools case included a results sheet for each paper showing which questions were answered and which were right or wrong with the raw scores and SAS for each paper.
(This was a Gloucester GS appeal)
