From 11am on Monday 1st July all results from the June Faculty Boards will be published on My Record and available to view on Canvas. You can expect to receive an email to your Unimail account confirming when your results have been released.
If, when you receive the final decision of your Faculty Exam Board, you feel that you have been unfairly disadvantaged you may have grounds for submitting an Academic Appeal.
An academic appeal is a request for a review into a decision made by a Faculty Exam Board.
Your appeal must meet at least one of 3 grounds:
a) You have evidence of Extenuating Circumstances that were not disclosed at the time
b) You have evidence of procedural irregularity
c) You have evidence of prejudice or bias
An appeal can be submitted as an individual or collectively if an issue has affected two or more students. You cannot appeal on the grounds that you disagree with the academic judgement or against the quality of teaching.
If you are considering submitting an appeal is a good idea to first raise your concerns informally. This helps to ensure that any possible misunderstandings can be resolved with an immediate explanation.
To lodge an appeal you are required to complete the Academic Appeal Form within 15 working days of the date on your Exam Board Letter. You’ll need to write a statement and include relevant supporting evidence. You’ll also need to state what you wish the outcome of your appeal to be. It is not possible to request for marks to be changed or work to be re marked. If your appeal is successful you may be able to submit a second attempt or permitted to progress to the next year of study.
If you would like support with the preparation and submission of an appeal, you can get in touch by emailing SU.Advice@winchester.ac.uk
