Concerns and complaints
Appealing an assessment decision
During your time at university, you may want to appeal an assessment decision. Find out more about the appeal process.
Making an appeal
You may be able to appeal against an assessment decision. For example, you may request to set aside a mark or request an additional attempt if you have a good reason for failing to apply for Exceptional Circumstances at the time. Before making an appeal we recommend that you speak to a member of staff from your course to clarify whether an appeal is the correct step. You may also find it useful to speak to the Students' Union.
If you do decide to make an appeal you will need to send an appeal form within 20 working days of the publication of the decision. A panel will review your appeal and the School's response.
If you wish to appeal an academic decision, please use the forms below.
You must submit all medical and other evidence with your appeal form. It is not sufficient to tell us that the evidence is available on request.
A full description of the appeals process can be found in our Code of Practice for Assessment.
