Grounds on which you may appeal
Appeals against the decision of an assessment board are only permitted on the following grounds:
- There is evidence that the extenuating circumstances were so severe as to have prevented the student from making an informed decision at the time as to whether to attempt an assessment or to apply for extenuation.
- There is clear evidence of a significant administrative error on the part of the University or in the conduct of the assessment/examination and that this accounted for your performance.
- The assessments had not been conducted in accordance with the approved regulations for the course of study.
- If some other material irregularity had occurred in the procedures of the Extenuating Circumstances Officer, the Assessment Board and/or the Board of Examiners.
If a student wishes to appeal against a decision or recommendation of an Assessment Board, they should complete and submit the online academic appeals form.
The form should be completed within ten working days of the publication of relevant assessment results via UEL Direct. Once completed the form will be sent to the Complaints & Appeals team.
