Appealing your grades?

If you have missed the conditions of your offer, but are appealing your SQA grades, please read the University policy regarding the provision of results at Confirmation to find out about how this may affect your place at Edinburgh.

If you feel that any special circumstances, such as illness, have affected your exam performance, we encourage you to follow the special circumstances procedures of the relevant exam board. Your school or college will be able to advise you about this.

If you need to speak to us about your offer, please call the relevant college admissions office directly.
