These FAQs are intended to support you and your school or college through the processes associated with RSL’s externally assessed units.
There are two ways in which you can access the controlled external assessment records:
To access a downloadable pdf of the overall grades for the unit:
The report will highlight which assessment criteria have not been met. For RSL qualifications, all assessment criteria must be met to achieve a pass. You may find that there is something very small that was not included which has meant the learning outcome has received an overall unclassified grade.
There is a box in the report which identifies which assessment criteria have not been met (see below for an example)
This will show you exactly which part of the criteria have not been met.
There are some units which have very specific criteria. For example, Unit 223, criteria 1.2 refers to ‘Produce a recording plan, describing repertoire to be recorded, instrumentation, personnel, accommodation, resources, schedule and timescale to meet the needs of the agreed brief.’ All aspects of these need to be met to achieve a pass so it may be that resources were not included, as an example, and this is why the overall outcome has not been met. This is particularly likely if a whole cohort is unclassified.
If, after reviewing the policy, you feel there are grounds for appeal, then you can make an application by sending a completed Rockschool Appeals Form (found here) to firstname.lastname@example.org. The form can be found on the same page as the policy.
