How is my degree result determined?

As you work towards completion of your degree programme, we recommend that you take a little time to familiarise yourself with the regulations that govern assessment in the University, and the sources of support that the University has in place if you have queries or concerns about your own result.

Assessment regulations

The University's Taught Assessment Regulations govern how undergraduate and postgraduate courses and programmes are assessed.

These Regulations also include links to the University’s Common Marking Scheme which is applied for all the School’s assessed work, including examinations.

Academic appeals

The University has in place a process for an Academic Appeal, following the release of results. An Appeal is a request for a decision made by a Board of Examiners relating to marks, progression, degree classification and/or degree award to be reconsidered.

It is important to note that the appeal process cannot be used to challenge academic judgement. That is, you cannot submit an appeal simply because you believe that you deserve a better mark. There are specific grounds under which an Academic Appeal may be submitted. These are set out in the relevant university Academic Appeal Regulations.

If you are considering lodging an appeal, it is important that you act promptly.

Information on the University's Academic Appeals Processes

The School strongly recommends that if you are considering submitting an Academic Appeal you should first study the guidance on the Appeals webpages, then contact the Students’ Association Advice Place, where trained advisers can offer guidance and support.
