The appeals process for summer 2021 allows students to appeal their grade where they believe there has been a genuine error. We have published a range of information on our website:
We have formally requested from students details of any special circumstances including access arrangements, the provision of reasonable adjustments and mitigating circumstances. These have then been considered in the awarding of TAGs.
If a TAG has been changed because of our own QA processes or in the application of mitigations, we will share this information with candidates on results days.
Individual raw marks available for the evidence pieces used to derive TAGs will be available on results day to those students who request this Requests are made to firstname.lastname@example.org
An Autumn Exam Series is available for those students who wish to take formal examinations to try to improve their TAG. Information regarding the Autumn Series will be published on our website once received.
Students can request that their TAG is reviewed.
Students must be aware that this process can result in three possible outcomes:
A grade review (appeal) happens in 2 stages.
