On this page, you will find a description of the procedure a candidate must follow to request an appeal regarding the Van Haren Learning Solutions exam. The conditions and requirements associated with the appeal procedure will also be explained on this page.
It is the responsibility of Van Haren Learning Solutions to independently assess all appeals and ensure that the quality of certification remains assured.
However, the candidate has the responsibility to follow the correct procedure, follow the instructions and abide by the conditions regarding the appeal.
The candidate must agree with the decision regardless of the outcome of get appeal. If he or she still disagrees, he or she must file a complaint according to the complaints procedure. All complaints must be clearly and explicitly reported, this gives the best chance of success in the appeal.
Our processes are evaluated annually as part of our self-evaluation. If candidates provide feedback and/or complaints, these are included in the evaluation process and dealt with accordingly. All appeals are handled by a separate employee, without the knowledge of the party involved in the complaint/feedback. This ensures that the matter is handled fairly and honestly.
If candidates do not agree with the decision on the examination, they can appeal. It is important that candidates understand the appeal procedure before they wish to appeal. Candidates should explicitly name the question being appealed in the appeal. Finally, a clear reason must be given for the appeal, and it must be understood that the candidate agrees that they will not be able to review the exam questions after the exam is finished. For a comprehensive overview of the appeal process, please refer to the overview (Appeal steps)
General correction of an appeal for candidates
If an appeal is justified and approved, all candidates who had this question in the last three months and failed will be selected for a correction of their marks. Those who would have passed if the questions had been corrected will receive a message confirming that they still passed the exam due to the correction.
Starting the appeal procedure
The appeal procedure is initiated upon request if the candidate has taken an exam and disagrees with his or her results and claims that there is an error in the exam or test.
If the candidate is right, his exam score will be corrected, and we will correct the scores of candidates who also got this question wrong in the last 3 months.
However, the candidate must agree and sign the terms and conditions and requirements. The requirements are all detailed at www.vanharen.net. However, it is also possible that the correction may not be granted. In that case, the candidate’s application will not be granted, part of the requirements and conditions is that the candidate accepts the outcome of the appeal.
