Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

Which part of the UK are you in.

Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

What exactly is it that you wish to change?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Eton College:Junior Scholarship mark
King's Scholarship Mark
Marks whilst at school
GCSE grades
A level grades
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Why do you think they need to be adjusted?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Because I was diagnosed with an illness that affected my IQ
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

I understand that - but why do you think that means that the marks can be changed?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
because I was disagnosed later- at the time when I took it I didn't know about my illness
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

I understand that but sadly that does not mean that the Marks can be changed.

You can if you wish retake your GCSEs and A Levels, or you can simply ensure that a letter setting out the medical position is always sent whenever you are asked to provide the records.

I am sorry - I am aware that you will be disappointed but sadly I have to tell you what the legal position is rather than what we might like it to be

Please ask if you need further details

In my Eton College Scholarship Maths- I scored 76- which is embarassing to me (even though I got the scholarship)- but through no fault of my own- can I write that I got 77 on my cv?. I realise that you can provide medical letters whenever you give a score on your cv- but if I write I got 76- theface value element is humiliating.

You can write whatever you wish - but if you are found to have done it then it will do much more harm to your position than an historic mark which you perceive to be too low
