Can I request a review of my result? 

If you are not happy with your results, you can request your test to be re-marked for an additional fee. This service is known as Enquiry on Results.   

How does it work?  

  • You may only ask for a re-marking of the entire test, and not for a single component.   
  • Grammar and vocabulary, reading and listening components checks are conducted by the system, to ensure they have been marked accurately.   
  • The speaking and writing components are re-marked by senior examiners. Re-marked test results are considered final.   
  • If your overall CEFR level increases after the re-marking, you will be refunded the full enquiry on results fee, and you will be issued with a new Aptis ESOL certificate.   
  • If your CEFR level remains the same or changes in a single component, but the overall CEFR level does not change, the fee will be retained, and you will be informed.   

The outcome of the Enquiry on Results is considered final. The results from the remarking process will be available after ten working days.    

How to submit an Enquiry on Results?  

You can make an Enquiry on Results request at any point up to eight weeks after the test day. You should submit your Enquiry on Results request with the test centre where you took your Aptis ESOL test.
