Hi, my son is in the position of having his papers internally reviewed but not had his scores amended. So an appeal seems pointless.
Not sure why you say that?
As I wrote in the Trafford appeal thread, "It does state that the review was FCO, but it looks as if para. 3.13b of the Code (which says that no other matters will be considered if there's already been a 'fair, consistent & objective' review) was not in practice used, since the panel apparently did go on to consider your case.
It may be that appeals for this school are very hard to win - but that's a different issue.
Would you think there would be any chance of me getting a copy of the review notes at this point?
They might try to resist, but I think you'd be entitled to them under the Data Protection Act.
You'll find a specimen letter here
Scroll down to (b). You can adapt as necessary, changing "appeal" to "review".
