Access to Scripts (ATS)
• Priority Script
If a GCE A-level or a Level 3 Principal Learning candidate is thinking of having a Priority Service 2 enquiry about results, an application for a priority copy must not be requested. Centres should progress straight to a Priority Service 2 enquiry about results, given the amount of time available for this service.
Centres will receive the copies by no later than 7th September 2017.
DEADLINE FOR RECEIPT OF APPLICATION (AND PAYMENT IF APPLICABLE): Thursday 24th August 12:00 NOON.
• Non-Priority Original Scripts (to support teaching and learning )
Centres will be able to request copies of relevant scripts to support teaching and learning.
• Copy of Reviewed Scripts (To be requested at the same time as the EAR request)
A copy of the reviewed script to be delivered after the review has been completed.
Conditions of Access to Scripts (ATS) service:
Awarding bodies will only release scripts to centres under the following conditions:
• Scripts must only be seen by teachers who are members of staff at that centre or within a consortium of centres, or returned directly to candidates.
• Where teaching staff intend to use scripts for teaching and learning purposes or as examples for other students, prior written permission must be obtained from the candidates concerned.
• This permission must be sought only after the candidates have received their results for the respective examination series. Candidates who grant their permission have the right to anonymity of their scripts before use. (Written consent from the candidate is also acceptable by e-mail.)
• A candidate has the right to instruct their centre not to request their scripts.
• The originals of scripts that are or have been the subject of any malpractice investigation can be withheld by an awarding body. In these circumstances, a photocopy of the scripts may be requested.
• Once an awarding body has returned an original hard copy script to a centre or a private candidate, its security is compromised and it can no longer be subject to an enquiry about results.
Which service do I want?
Frequently Asked Questions
A Higher Education place is at stake – which service shall I use?
You should apply for a Priority Service 2 review of marking. You only have until 24th August to request a Priority Service 2 EAR. Please note that you cannot ask for a priority copy of the script.
I just want to see the candidate’s script and do not want a review of the marking
You should request scripts to support teaching and learning.
I want to see a script to decide whether to have its marking reviewed
You should ask for a priority copy of the script to support a review of marking. (You cannot do this for AQA GCSE qualifications scripts.)
If I ask for the return of a script (not a copy) can I use that to decide whether or not to have the marking reviewed?
No. Firstly, awarding bodies do not despatch scripts to support teaching and learning until after the deadline for enquiries about results. Secondly, where an original hard copy script is in the centre’s possession, its security is compromised and it cannot then be accepted for a review of marking.
I want to see a script after it has undergone a review of the original marking
You should request Service 2 (a mark review) or Priority Service 2 (a priority mark review) and make sure that you request a copy when submitting your request. The script will be reviewed and the copy sent to you when the service is completed. It is strongly recommended that you do not ask for a review of marking, and then separately ask for the return of the script to support teaching and learning.
PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCEPT REQUESTS FOR ANY SERVICES IF WE RECEIVE THEM AFTER THE DEADLINE, WE DO NOT HAVE WRITTEN CONSENT OR ANY APPLICABLE FEES HAVE NOT BEEN PAID.
