Is there a deadline for Appealing?

Requests for Appeals cannot be made until after you have been notified of the Examining Board’s decision (i.e. after your results have been published on the intranet).

You have up to 3 months from the date of the Examination Board’s decision having been published on the intranet to submit your appeal (unless there is a compelling reason why your appeal is submitted after the three month period).

Given the Covid 19 situation there may be delays in the processing of your appeal due to staff working remotely, staff illness and caring responsibilities. When we receive your appeal, we will aim to provide you with a realistic timescale at that point and update you in the event that the timescale needs to be changed.

Special consideration dates

Whilst students have 3 months to submit an appeal, if you do not already have a decision of supplementary attempt/s and seek an appeal outcome of supplementary attempt/s to be taken during the August 2021 supplementary assessment period you will need to submit your appeal to Academic Services by the dates set out below.  This will enable consideration, where possible, prior to the supplementary assessment period commencing.

Student type                                                              Deadline for appeal submission


Undergraduate Finalists                                                         Friday 23 July 2021

Postgraduate Taught                                                              Friday 23 July 2021

Undergraduate non-final year                                                 Friday 30 July 2021

MBBCh Graduate Entry Medicine years 1-3*                        Thursday 5 August 2021       

MSc Physicians Associates years 1 & 2*                              Tuesday 29 June 2021

Appeals submitted requesting a supplementary attempt/s at an assessment after the above detailed deadlines will not normally be processed and considered in time for the supplementary assessment period which commences on 16 August 2021.

In addition, please note students unsuccessful at appeal/who do not receive the outcome they had hoped for at appeal and who submit final review applications requesting supplementary attempts should be aware that this year (due to the short period of time between the  publication of results  and the commencement of the supplementary assessment period) final review applications will not be considered and processed in time for/during the supplementary assessment period.  It is therefore extremely important that students provide all relevant evidence and information when submitting an appeal.

* Important information for MBBCh Graduate Entry Medicine (years 1-3) and MSc Physicians Associates (years 1& 2) students only.

Students studying on the MBBCh Graduate Entry Medicine programme (years 1-3) and the MSc Physicians Associates programme (years 1 & 2) will note that the deadline for submission of an appeal is Thursday 5 August 2021 (MBBCH) and Tuesday 29 June 2021 ( Physicians Associates) with the supplementary assessment period for students on those programmes commencing on Monday 9 August 2021 (MBBCh) and Monday 12 July 2021 ( Physicians Associates) ) .  To ensure that any students on these programmes who have submitted an appeal by the deadline of Thursday 5 August 2021 (MBBCh)/ Tuesday 29 June 2021 ( Physicians Associates)  requesting a supplementary attempt at an assessment/s do not miss the opportunity to take the supplementary assessment (in the event that their appeal is subsequently successful) it has been decided that students studying on these programmes will be given the opportunity to take the supplementary assessment before the appeal is processed.   However, please note any student offered this opportunity takes the supplementary assessment at their own risk as in the event that the appeal is subsequently unsuccessful, the student’s assessment/s will not be marked and no marks will be awarded to the student for the assessment/s.

In the case of international students on the MBBCh Graduate Entry Medicine programme who need a Tier 4 visa to study in the University who are appealing against a withdrawn decision and requesting a supplementary attempt/s at an assessment/s, it is likely that, due to UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) restrictions the option of sitting supplementary assessment/s prior to the appeal being processed will not be available.  Such students are therefore advised to contact the Medical School before submitting an appeal.
