When can I appeal?
An appeal may be made in circumstances where a student’s performance in examinations or assessment has been adversely affected by serious matters beyond his or her control. The circumstances or grounds of an appeal are strictly limited to:
- Material, administrative error or procedural irregularity, which has affected your results.
- The production of significant new evidence concerning extenuating or mitigating circumstances which for good reason had not been made available to the Boards of Examiners at a University Assessment Board.
- Unfair treatment or discrimination alleged as part of the assessment process which for good reason had not been considered previously under the University Complaints Procedure.
Appeals must be submitted within TEN working days of the publication of your results.
Disagreement with any mark or grade will not constitute grounds for an appeal. Complaints outside this definition should be made through the University's Complaints Procedure.
