Post Exam Results Processes

18 Apr 2021

Once the CTA exam results have been released, we offer two post exam result processes: (i) Recheck of Marks and (ii) Marks Breakdown. You can read more on these, and apply, below.

We cannot, under any circumstances:

  • Return your marked script to you or provide a copy
  • Remark your script
  • Enter into discussion, correspondence or provide a commentary on your individual performance in any of the papers that you have sat or discuss the outcome of any rechecked paper(s)

Your script remains the property of the Institute and we cannot return them or provide copies.

You will receive your marks breakdown/recheck of marks within 21 working days after successful submission of your request.

Recheck of Marks

A recheck of marks is a procedural review of your exam script. We will make sure that all of the administrative procedures in place to reach your final mark were followed correctly. This is not a remark.

You are only eligible to apply for a recheck if you meet certain conditions:

  1. The request was made within 21 working days following the date that the exam results are released for that exam session
  2. You sat an Advanced Technical or Awareness paper (this is not offered for the Application and Professional Skills paper due to the competency based marking approach of the paper)
  3. Your marks were 44-47 inclusive
  4. Your script was not sent for second moderation (we will inform you if it was shortly after you submit a recheck)

If there is a material change to your grade (a fail to a pass) as a result of the recheck, then you would be refunded the fee that you paid for your recheck. If you have entered to re-sit the paper at the next exam session before you know the results of your recheck (and you subsequently receive a material change to your grade) then you would be given a full refund for the exam entry fee that you have paid for the next session.

Marks Breakdown

When you receive your exam result, you will be told your final mark on that paper. If you would like to know what mark you achieved on each question of the exam paper, you can request a marks breakdown. There is no time restriction on when you can apply for this.


The fees for each service, per exam paper, are:

  • Recheck of Marks - £35*
  • Marks Breakdown - £15
  • Recheck of Marks and Marks Breakdown - £50*

*The Recheck of Marks service is only available for 21 working days following the date that the exam results are released for that exam session.
