If you believe that a procedural and / or administrative irregularity may have occurred during your Work-based Assessment or OSCE, you may make an appeal.
You can only make an appeal if you believe that there were procedural or administrative irregularities or mistakes in the conduct of the examination or assessment, which were of such a nature as to cause reasonable doubt about whether the Examiners or Assessor would have reached the same conclusions had the irregularities not occurred.
An Appeal cannot be made against examiner judgment.
Appeals must be made within 28 days of the results date of the examination to which it relates and can include supporting documentary evidence at your discretion.
In the first instance, the appeal will be considered by the Examinations Panel. In some cases, the Examinations Panel will decide to refer a more complex appeal to the Appeals Panel.
The administrative fee for each appeal is £100. An appeal submitted against the decisions in two sections/stations or more will constitute separate appeals and will incur additional charges.
If the Examinations Panel or Appeals Panel upholds an appeal, the appeal fee will be returned to the Trainee.
Dates of future Examinations and Appeals Panel meetings can be found here.
