"Is it worth getting the marks review?" is our most asked question in the week after results release. The disappointment of not passing is at its peak, and many students are struggling to understand why they were not successful.
The short answer is simple: probably not.
There are several reasons:
So, our opinion is that it is not worth paying for the ICAEW Marks Review service.
Having said that...
If, once you've read the Examiners' Report, you still strongly believe something has gone wrong in your marking, the Marks Review will give you peace of mind. If you will always wonder if you should have passed then make your application, pay your £50 and set your mind at rest. For the November 2018 Case Study your deadline is 17:15 on 4 January 2019 - here is the link to ICAEW's form. The Examiners' Report and our blog will be available before Christmas so you have time to review the material and make your decision.
And what about the Marks Feedback Service?
The answer to that is yes, Yes, YES, you need your Marks Feedback! But that is a subject for another Blog.
