Appealing An Exam Board Decision

You may be able to submit an appeal if you have significant concerns about the way your assessment was conducted, or if you have extenuating circumstances which you were not able to tell us about at the time.

If you think that you have grounds to appeal against an Examination Board's decision please read the following University Appeals Procedures and Guidance Notes, paying particular attention to the Grounds for Review. Appeals which do not meet the grounds will be rejected:
