This is a request for a review of an Assessment Board or Mitigating Circumstances Board’s decision. Assessment Boards make decisions on student progress, assessment and awards.

When can I appeal?

The two grounds for which you can submit an Academic Appeal are as follows:

  • Material irregularity in the assessment process
  • Material irregularity in the Mitigating Circumstances process

What does all that mean?

This means that the University has not acted in accordance with its own regulations or procedures, or where an error has been made in the processing of a decision.
