Access to Scripts is one of the new services available via our single sign-on service, My Cambridge.
Access to Scripts enables exams officers to download copies of your students’ completed question papers or ‘scripts’ so your school or college can decide whether to request a review of marking and to support teaching and learning.
We’ll be trialling the service in summer 2022 for the first time in addition to our existing service. This is the first step in providing a free, on-demand access to scripts service for all our qualifications.
Exams officers will be able to download scripts from results day for the following qualifications:
As for our existing service, you must have written permission from students before you can access the scripts.
Log into Access to Scripts. You can either do this by logging into My Cambridge at sso.cambridge.org and clicking on the ‘Access to Scripts’ tile or by going directly to Access to Scripts at https://accesstoscripts.cambridgeassessment.org.uk
If you are an exams officer and have not set up your My Cambridge account, please go to the My Cambridge web page for more details.
Once you have set up your My Cambridge account, if one of the links above doesn't work, you may not have permission to access Access to Scripts. Only exams officers will have permission to use this service. If you are an exams officer and cannot access the service, please contact us.
After you log in, you will see a welcome page which shows the recent, current and upcoming series and when the scripts will be available within the series. If the series is ‘open’, click ‘Open series’.
You will see all the qualifications you have results for. Click on the dropdown arrow for the relevant qualification and click the component you need.
You can download scripts:
If a script is not available for any reason, you will see the message ‘Script is unavailable’ next to the candidate’s name. If a candidate was absent, their name will not appear in the list.
You then need to confirm you have the written permission from the student(s) to download the script and this was given after they received their results. Click the box and then click ‘Confirm and download’.
If you download scripts individually, they will download as a PDF file. If you download more than one script, they will download as a zip file containing your PDFs.
Please save your files to a suitable location. You will not be able to download the scripts after the ‘availability’ of the series expires.
