I'm an international student doing Edexcel A Levels- which means that I'm doing them from outside the UK.
I called my examination centre to find out the deadline for declining the grades for the Jan 2008 exams.
At first the response was "Im not sure"
When I called them again today, they said
" You are no longer allowed to decline grades from Jan 2008 exams and onwards"
They then read out
a paragraph from an official notification they had received which basically said that June 2007 exams were the last exams that could be declined, and that after that exams could not be declined.
Does anyone know if this is true or false?
I would normally be inclined to not
believe them, except that in this case they actually read out the paragraph from the official notification.
And also, I received this information directly from the examinations officer.
