Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing
Administering our tests
There are five possible grades:
All STEP questions are marked out of 20. The final grade for the paper is based on the student’s six best answers only.
All the questions that are attempted by a student will be marked. Candidates are rewarded for making good progress towards a solution, even if the final answer is incorrect. Correct answers always receive full marks, whatever the method used.
Usually a candidate who answers four questions well (not perfectly) will be awarded a grade 1 for that paper.

On Thursday 17 August 2017, we will issue a PDF Statement of Results to each candidate via our Results Online system. Candidates and centres can download their results online:
Results Online – Candidates
Results Online – Centres
Results are only available for candidates to download for 60 days from the date of issue. After this date we are unable to provide candidates with a re-issue of their Statement of Results document.
Results will be passed to institutions through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) for use in their admissions processes. There is some variation in how different institutions make use of the results – candidates can contact the relevant institution(s) for more information on this.
Unlike A Levels, Cambridge candidates’ answers are available to Cambridge admissions officers. This enables officers to make judgments on candidates who miss their offer on the basis of their actual work, rather than on just their marks or grade.
