Dear Sarah

Thank you for your email.

I can confirm that if your sister requests that her school submits a
review of marking on her behalf her overall grade can only remain the same
or go up. It cannot go down. Further information can also be found in our
[1]Enquiries about Results Guide for parents and candidates.

Please do contact me if you require any further assistance.
