Post Exam Result Processes

Once the CTA exam results have been released, the CIOT 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).

Recheck of Marks

A recheck of marks is a procedural review of your exam script. The CIOT 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 eligible to apply for a recheck if your marks were 44-47 inclusive and your script was not sent for second moderation.

You can request a recheck of marks up to 21 working days following the date that the exam results are released.

This service is only available for the Advanced Technical and Awareness papers. A recheck of marks is not offered for the Application and Professional Skills paper due to the competency based marking approach of the paper.

Once submitted, you will receive your recheck of marks within 21 working days.

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. The fee is £15 for this service and there is no time restriction on when you can apply for this.

Once submitted, you will receive your marks breakdown within 21 working days.
