FAQ 2159
I want to submit an academic appeal. How do I do it?

An academic appeal will only be accepted if it falls into one of the following grounds:

1)  There has been a material irregularity or significant administrative error in the assessment process

2)  The assessment was not conducted in accordance with the regulations for the programme

3)  A student’s performance in assessment has been affected by illness or other factors which, for valid reason(s), s/he was unable to divulge before the meeting of the Assessment Board

A completed appeal form must be submitted to the Education Service Manager (ESM) for the Faculty within 10 days of the date of publication of results. The ESM will investigate and respond at the local stage of the Appeals Procedure. If you remain unsatisfied by the response, you may submit your appeal for central review to appeals@bournemouth.ac.uk.
