5.12 Appeals

Under certain defined circumstances and as per the University Calendar (University Regulations) students may appeal against decisions relating to their academic progress or outcomes. These may be summarised broadly as follows:

  • Final-year undergraduate students may appeal against the award of a particular degree class or if they have not been awarded a qualification. For an appeal to have any chance of success it should be based on relevant evidence which
    was not available to the Board of Examiners when its decision was reached. Further the reason why the evidence was not available at the time the Board met should be provided.
  • First-year and intermediate-year undergraduate students have the right to appeal only against a decision that they be required to withdraw from their course of study, and then only if they are in possession of relevant evidence which was not available to the Board of Examiners when its decision was reached.

*All appeals must be lodged in writing within ten University working days of the publication of the examination result which is the subject of the appeal*. Supplementary information / evidence may be added to an appeal after this time.

Further information and details of the process can be found in the University Calendar (see Regulation 42) or at warwick.ac.uk/services/academicoffice/examinations/students/appeals
