If you are dissatisfied with an assessment result or progress status, you have the right to lodge an appeal within 20 working days.
An appeal against an assessment result must demonstrate that the assessment is incorrect or unfair.
If you believe you have grounds for an appeal, you should first contact the lecturer concerned. If the matter is not satisfactorily resolved, you may then lodge an appeal with the head of school.
University procedures for appeals are available from the University Secretariat.
You are responsible for checking when and where your exams are held.
You can do this by checking your timetable in studentConnect.
On the Student Administration website, you will find detailed information on results, appeals, deferred examinations, exam clashes, exam papers, rules and who to contact for further information about exams.
Special consideration allows Faculties to take into account significant and unforeseen factors that may have affected your academic preparation or performance.
Consideration is given to significant personal illness, the death or serious illness of someone close to you, or other significant circumstances that compromise your studies.
