Should you like further guidance or to discuss your grades, we are here to help.  You can either speak or email your course tutor.

Appeals Process

You will have received your overall assessment grade, which we hope you feel is a fair and just reflection.  A process has been established by Ofqual for those students who feel an error has been made in awarding the grade.

In the first instance if you wish to appeal your grade you are advised to discuss this with your Tutor and their Department Manager, please contact

The grounds of appeal are;

  1. Administrative: e.g the wrong grade/mark was recorded
  2. Procedural: e.g a reasonable adjustment/access arrangement was not provided for an eligible student
  3. Unreasonable exercise of academic judgement: the choice of evidence from which to determine the grade and/or the determination of that grade from the evidence was unreasonable.
