Post Exam Result Services

Once the CTA exam results have been released, the CIOT offer two post exam result services (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 any of the paper(s) on your individual performance or the outcome of a rechecked paper.

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.


How can I apply?

Like all post exam result services, you will need to make your request via an email to us. Instructions on how to do this are below. The fee to recheck a single paper is £35.

Step 1 – Complete the Form

Every request for a recheck of marks needs to be made by completing the form below. Once completed, send the form to education [at] tax.org.uk

Step 2 – Await confirmation

A member of the Education Team will review your request and will let you know, via email, if you meet the criteria for a recheck of marks.

Step 3 – Make payment

Once your request has been approved, you will need to make a payment for the recheck. Your email from the Education Team will let you know how to do this.

Step 4 – Await the result of your recheck of marks

Once your application has been received, and we have confirmed payment, we will begin working on your recheck of marks. Typically, you will receive the outcome of your recheck, via an email, within 21 working days.

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 mark breakdown. The fee to receive a mark breakdown for a single paper is £15.

There is no deadline to apply for a marks breakdown.
