Exam Results Appeal Advice

Exam Results Appeal Advice

Need to appeal your results? Find out about the 10 day deadline and more

With exam results set to be published on 20 June, we hope all of our students are rewarded for their hard work this year!  

But, if you are unhappy with your grade or would like to appeal an academic decision, you are entitled to submit a formal appeal within 10 working days from the results release date, which makes the deadline 4 July. 

To increase the chances of your appeal being successful, you need to meet the appeal criteria and provide a strong argument, backed up by evidence where possible. This could include timelines, letters of support or other documents. Where you have mitigating factors, such as sickness, that affected you, you will need to explain why you did not make anyone aware of this at the time and apply for mitigation to defer the assessment.  

The appeals criteria clearly state that students are not able to make an appeal because they disagree with the academic result. We strongly recommend that you take a look at the full list of regulations before making an appeal, and remember to complete the correct form (found in section 6.1).  

 If your appeal concerns your overall degree classification, take a look at how these are awarded for Undergraduate Bachelors and Integrated Masters at Exeter.  

If you have any questions about appealing and would like advice and support, please contact the Advice Service. Please allow sufficient time for response to your enquiry before the appeal deadline; the sooner you get in touch, the better chance your enquiry will have of being answered before the deadline.
