Determination of marks and grades
There may be instances when you believe that your final grade in a unit does not accurately reflect your performance against the unit criteria. If this happens and you are unable to resolve it with the Academic staff member concerned then you can apply for a formal Review of Grade by the advertised deadline for the relevant teaching session. Find out more on the Review of Grade page.
