What is not covered by the procedure?
The appeals procedure does not cover the following categories of appeal for which separate procedures exist:
Disagreement with the academic judgement of a Board of Examiners' decision cannot, in itself constitute a reason to Appeal. Academic judgement is a judgement that is made about a matter where only the opinion of an academic expert will suffice. For example, a judgement about assessment or degree classification or a judgement about a decision where a student is required to repeat or take further assessment will usually be academic judgement, and a student cannot appeal simply because they believe they ought to have received a higher grade or mark.
For further information on the scope of this procedure, please refer to section 4 of Part 7 of the Manual of General Regulations.
