You can appeal the decision of an Examination Board on the following grounds:
- Procedural irregularity - there is evidence that the procedures relating to an assessment decision were not followed properly, which may have impacted on the decision.
- Late Extenuating Circumstances - there were extenuating circumstances of which the Governing Board was aware but had rejected, because the application was late and the Governing Board did not consider the reason why the application was late to be valid.
All students wishing to submit an extenuating circumstances claim must follow the extenuating circumstances process, at a local level, in the first instance. Students can only appeal in circumstances where an extenuating circumstances application is not considered due to lateness.
Dissatisfaction or disappointment with the result of an assessment is not a ground for an assessment appeal. Similarly, appeals are not allowed on matters relating to academic judgement.
