SECTION 9: Results Appeal

 

You should seek impartial advice and support from the Students’ Union Advice Centre if you wish to submit an appeal.

 

9.1 Regulation Introduction

9.1.1 If you believe the marks or classification you received on a published results date should be reconsidered, you may submit an appeal

9.1.2 This procedure may be right for you if you have evidence to confirm that:

  • there was a material irregularity in how your work was marked;
  • there was a material irregularity in how your classification was calculated;
  • there were circumstances that affected your submission and you could not have told us sooner by using our extenuating circumstances (EC) procedure.

9.1.3 This procedure may not be right for you if:

  • you wish to complain about the supervision you received during the academic year;
  • you wish to complain about your general learning experience (including the feedback you received);
  • you wish to question an informal mark given to you during the academic year. You should follow the procedure for requesting a re-mark which is at the beginning of the appealing a results procedure.

9.1.4 If your appeal would be more appropriately dealt with using a different University procedure, we will advise you which procedure to use and why. If you raise issues using a different procedure, we may choose to consider it as an appeal instead. If so we will explain this to you.

9.1.5 Prior to you receiving your published, confirmed results, you may request for a review of a mark or grade where there is demonstrable material irregularity within the marking process. A request for a review of a mark or grade will only be permitted where it has not yet been referred to a Course Assessment Board (CAB) and has not already been second or blind double marked. How to do this is detailed in the Results Appeal Procedure.
