Results and Appeals

Results and Appeals

All you need to know ahead of results being released on Monday 28 June.

Students across all years and disciplines will be receiving their examination results on Monday 28 June. We want to wish you all the best of luck with your results, and we hope that everyone has done as well as they hoped, particularly after what has been such a challenging year.

All students should be incredibly proud of their continued hard work and perseverance this year, and we are confident that it will have paid off.


Academic Appeals

If you find that your results haven’t gone entirely plan, or that you’re unhappy with an academic decision for an exam, coursework or your overall degree, then you have the right to submit a formal appeal.

Any student can submit an appeal, but the success of the appeal depends on whether the student meets the University’s appeal grounds, with evidence to support their claim. The three grounds on which appeals can be successful are summarised on our website and  include:

  1. The exam board wasn’t aware of information about circumstances affecting your academic performance
  2. The University did not properly follow its own processes to a significant extent
  3. There was bias on the part of your examiners, which you can prove or highlight reasonable grounds to perceive.

It is important to note that students have ten working days from the date that results are received to submit a formal appeal. This means that you should prepare the appeal, and gather any evidence, as soon as you can. You will need to complete the Formal Appeal Form and send it to the relevant College Cases email address that can be found here.

A decision as to the success of your appeal will normally take up to 30 days.


Support from the Advice Service

We know that submitting an academic appeal can be stressful, particularly if your overall degree will be hindered in any way. The Advice Service at the Students’ Guild are able to assist and support students with any academic matters, including the process of appealing results.

To discuss any queries or concerns with regards to your results, please contact the Advice Service and book an online appointment with one of our trained advisors who will be more than happy to help.

For any further support that you might need following your results, there is also the University’s Wellbeing Service that can provide resources and professional support if you need it.

At the Students’ Guild, we are here to help and support you, so please get in touch if you are in need of any support and assistance with your results.

We hope that all goes to plan in the coming few days, and, again, we wish you the best of luck and a huge congratulations!
