Academic FAQs

I believe I have been unfairly marked down, what can I do about it?

Unfortunately academic judgement cannot be appealed. The University considers its marking process to be sufficiently rigorous to prevent  bias from affecting a students mark. There may be grounds on which you can appeal a mark, for instance, if there is an irregularity in the assessment process e.g. you only had two hours in what should have been a three hour exam; or you have mitigating circumstances which you could not disclose via the extenuating circumstance procedure. Please go the section on appeals for more information on appealing an Award Board decision.
