    CANDIDATE PORTFOLIO

    The Candidate Portfolio represents the work on the course which will be assessed in order for your final course grade to be awarded. The portfolio must be kept up-to-date and must be handed in at the end of the course to your course tutor in order for final grade assessment to take place. The portfolio is retained at the centre for six months after your course. You may take copies of any of the content you wish to keep before handing it in at the end of the course or advise the centre before the end of the six-month retention period if you wish to have your portfolio returned to you. Your centre may charge an administration fee for processing this request. Please make sure that only original documents are filed in the portfolio, and not copies. Portfolio Contents

    CAMBRIDGE ENGLISH APPEALS PROCEDURE Cambridge English Language Assessment aims to provide access to English language teaching courses

    of the highest possible quality. However, there may be occasions when candidates have concerns

    regarding the course provision offered by a centre and/or their final result. The information below provides

    guidance for the procedures to follow in such cases.

    During the course candidate concerns

    If you have concerns regarding the course provision or the assessment of your performance during the

    course, these should be raised with the centre as soon as possible, so that the centre has an opportunity

    to address them while the course is still in progress.

    It is possible to raise concerns:

    as part of general feedback during the course in which candidates may be invited to discuss the

    course or to complete a feedback form

    during a scheduled individual tutorial with one of the course tutors

    in a meeting with a course tutor/centre representative as and when a concern occurs.

    In addition, each course is visited by an external assessor for quality assurance purposes. The assessor

    checks the extent to which centres/courses are meeting Cambridge English requirements regarding, e.g.

    course delivery, facilities, assessment of candidate performance. You may request an opportunity to

    speak to the assessor about your concerns during their visit which usually takes place towards the end of

    the course.

    Early discussion with your centre may help to resolve issues. However, in some cases, concerns may

    persist. For this reason, centres are required to have an internal complaints procedure to help to address

    any unresolved issues.

    At the end of the course candidate concerns about the final recommended grade

    If you are unhappy with the final grade recommended by your tutors at the end of the course, you should

    raise this with your centre in the first instance. A representative from the centre should discuss with you

    the reasons for the final recommended grade. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of this discussion,

    you can request to complete the centres internal complaints procedure.

    Please note that all grades recommended by a centre at the end of a course remain provisional until

    confirmed by Cambridge English after verification by a Chief Assessor.

    Appeals to Cambridge English If you have completed all stages of your centres internal complaints procedure and you remain

    dissatisfied with the response regarding course provision and/or unhappy with the final result once it is

    confirmed by Cambridge English, you may make an appeal to Cambridge English.
