Grade Appeal: Having Your Module Results Reviewed

Modified on Tue, 06 Jun 2023 at 01:00 PM

We appreciate that there is a possibility of students being disappointed with the grade or feedback for a module from time to time, particularly if they perceive the results to not be a true reflection of their work. Please be advised that if this is the case, all students are welcome to request a review of their grades or feedback for their recent module results, providing that they have not already been through the double-marking process. 

If you would like to appeal your marks, we are able to escalate this to our colleagues in our Teaching and Learning Department to source further feedback and a review of grades and feedback given. Please note, that you may only appeal your grades where there is evidence that:

  • There has been an administrative error (e.g. marks are missing for correctly submitted work)
  • There has been an error in the assessment instructions or delivery, which has adversely affected performance
  • An academic decision was not arrived at in accordance with the regulations of the course

Disagreement with the academic judgement of your tutor will not be considered as grounds for appeal. Complaints relating to the quality of teaching or supervision or other circumstances that relate to the delivery of a programme of study will also not be considered, as such issues should be properly raised with student services as they arise, and prior to assessment or examination.I

If you were to proceed with an appeal, this process can take 20-working days, and it is important for us to note that in the process of reviewing, grades can be both increased or decreased. It is beneficial to outline the module, component(s), and feedback you wish to have reviewed in your form of contact to us so that we can have as much information as possible going forward. 

In addition, if you are wishing to appeal the results at the end of your course after it has been completed (i.e. once the results have gone through the Academic Board, you will have a very limited amount of time for this, due to the requirement of results being confirmed to provide students with an academic classification and qualification award. 

Please Note: As with the majority of academic institutions in the United Kingdom, results generally remain provisional until they have gone through the Award Board with the respective university partner, a process whereby all grades are consolidated and confirmed for award.
