Transcript and Presenter's Notes

Title: Appeals

  • Luke Vulpiani
  • (Assistant Academic Registrar
  • Student Casework)

  • Student Appeals, Complaints and Conduct Unit
  • Room E12, Queens' Building
  • Email
  • Telephone 020 7882 3457

  • An academic appeal is the only method by which a
    student can request a review of an Examination
    Board decision.

How do students appeal?
  • Form and guidance is on the QMUL website
  • http//
  • Students must complete the appeal form in full.
  • Must supply evidence with appeal form or within 7
    days of submission.
  • Form can be submitted electronically from a
    students Queen Mary email account, otherwise a
    paper-copy will be required.

  • Appeals must be received within 14 days of the
    results date.
  • 11 July 2012 Official publication of results
    date undergraduate.
  • 30 July 2012 Official publication of results
    date postgraduate.
  • Students may receive results prior to this date,
    but this is the date from which the period
    permitted for appeals begins.

Grounds for Appeal
  • College Appeal Regulations
  • (CAR) 2011-12 2.132
  • Procedural error
  • Where the process leading to the decision being
    appealed against was not conducted in accordance
    with QMULs procedure, such that there is
    reasonable doubt as to whether the outcome might
    have been different had the error not occurred.
    Procedural error shall include alleged
    administrative or clerical error, and bias in the
    operation of the procedure.
  • ii. Exceptional circumstances
  • that exceptional circumstances, illness, or
    other relevant factors were not made known at the
    time for good reason, or were not properly taken
    into account.

  • Appeals against academic judgement are not
    permitted please discourage these.
  • Appeals can not raise module marks or degree
    classifications except where there has been a
    procedural error inputting or calculating marks.
  • Issues should be resolved by the board without
    the need for appeal if possible and if
    permissible within the regulations.
  • EC requests only accept late applications if
    very compelling evidence.

Exceptional Circumstances
  • SEBs appropriate decision-making body for EC
  • Appeals consider whether there was good reason
    why a student did not make their ECs known, not a
    consideration of the ECs.
  • Also consider if the board did not properly take
    them into account.
  • If an appeal is upheld on the grounds of ECs will
    be referred back to the board.

We aim to complete appeals in 28 working days
  • CAR 2.141. A student shall normally be notified
    of the outcome of their appeal application within
    28 working days from the receipt of the
    submission of supporting evidence. Where a case
    is likely to take longer than 28 days, students
    shall be notified to this effect.
