Requests for remark

All the entrance tests are double scanned and checked using different optical mark readers and different staff.  The process is reliable and trustworthy and as a result re-marks would be unnecessary.  The likelihood of any mistake being made in recording the correct test responses from the multiple choice answer sheets is negligible.  The cost of a re-mark would be £50 per paper.  Requests for a remark should be made in writing to the school where your child sat the test.
