I've never appealed a result in all my 40+ years of teaching. Can ayone advise me how to go about this if I do decide to?

Trinity exams this morning. As it's a private visit we'll be getting the results when the examiner leaves around 1pm, so not a very long wait! It's quite a scary moment when he hands us the mark sheets.

Congratulations to you all, and even you barri-clari (even though you are not happy) :

Thanks.
I suppose I should be happy : the two lovely distinctions and easy merit should make it so : but the fail was such a big round fail...so it's onwards and upwards... :(

 I see from the website that, for a theory re-mark, I would have to fill out a formal appeal form and that it would cost 50% of the exam fee to do so.

As for appeals, I have only ever appealed a practical exam result with Trinity once and it was fairly straight forward and was successful. I had a similar issue with a theory exam where the student transposed in the wrong direction and got 0. I can't believe it was all wrong so thought she would have been due some marks but apparently not.

Unless it changed the category I don't think I'd bother appealing though, but if you do, Good luck!  :)

I now know a bit more about appeals - the only way to appeal a theory result is to ask for a re-mark. If the mark given is then higher, no fee is required but if the mark stays the same, 50% of the exam fee is applied. The mum of the pupil would like to do this so I'm applying for a re-mark tomorrow.

We were very pleased with 7 distinctions (including all 4 grade 8s) and 5 merits from Trinity yesterday. This was a group of 4 teachers, my own results were grade 8 distinction x 3, grade 3 merit x 1. This was in addition to 9 distinctions and 9 merits 10 days ago. Both examiners said they were very impressed with the high standards. We have mostly been very pleased with Trinity exams since starting them less than 2 years ago (we still offer Abrsm but more people are opting for Trinity). The examiners seem to reward musicality. There has only been one examiner we found harsh and he was a guitarist (most of our candidates are piano).

Finally got the boy's grade eight singing - 124 - which is excellent, especially as he now tells me he totally messed up his folk song! But it was six weeks in coming, and even allowing for it having to go to the JD first (they emailed as soon as they got the results, because we'd all waited so long. Normally they send them on) that is way too long.
