Review of results

Final results in a completed unit may be reviewed on request by students. Results reviewed, will consist primarily to ensure that all submissions in relation to a grade have been accounted for and that the total of all marks awarded is correct.

Students should contact the unit coordinator for the initial review, in writing, within 15 days from the release of results.

Students dissatisfied with the outcome of a review of their result may choose to appeal as outlined in the policy Student Appeals Against Academic Decisions.

Appeals against academic decisions

The Resolutions of Senate and Academic Board governing appeals against Academic Decisions clearly outlines the circumstances by which a student may appeal against an academic decision.

The Faculty of Health Sciences has established procedures whereby a student may appeal against an academic decision. In the first instance students should attempt to resolve the matter with the unit of study co-ordinator and request the outcome in writing. All reviews should be completed within 15 days of the date of the academic decision.

If the student is still not dissatisfied with the outcome, they may appeal to the Faculty within 15 working days. Students should submit their written appeal electronically to or lodge in person at Student Central, Block F.

An acknowledgement will be sent to students for receipt of a formal appeal within 3 days. The matter should normally be dealt with by the Dean's nominee within ten working days and students will be advised in writing of the Faculty's decision.

Students should refer to the following policy: Student Appeals Against Academic Decisions.
