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.
