There are three Examination Boards, one each for first years, second years and finalists. The Examination Boards consider the performance of all students over the academic year and make a recommendation with regards to progression. The Finalist Examination Board recommends the final degree classification that should be conferred on each student.
You have the right of appeal against the decision of a final year Board of Examiners regarding the classification of degree awarded or a decision not to award a qualification. There are specific acceptable grounds for appeal. Please refer to the University Policy on Academic Appeals.
