This article will provide you with the information you need to appeal an exam or coursework mark.
If you feel that the Board of Examiners or the unit assessment board have made an error in their decision or have not received all of the information relating to your circumstances, you have the right to appeal. You can’t appeal simply because you don’t agree with or you are unhappy with your mark, and a request for remarking is not an appeal and is dealt within your department.
If you think an academic decision is incorrect, you may need advice about which options are open to you, and whether your expectations are realistic.
You can seek advice from the Students’ Union with a Sabbatical Officer or an Adviser, and you can seek advice from the university with your Personal Tutor or Head of Department. Students' Union Advisers are also able to accompany students to appeal meetings for support.
It is recommended that you speak with your Head of Department first, as sometimes small issues can be resolved at this level.
You can find more information on the Students’ Union independent advice pages.
