Final grade

Under some circumstances, students may appeal the final grade of their course. You have to be able to show that the course description was not clear or that the delivery of the course did not match the course description.

Final grade appeals Semester 2 2021 (term code 2120)
You can submit a final grade appeal for Semester 2 2021 once grades are officially published in My Student Centre on Monday 6 December 2021. For other teaching period result publication dates check Important dates.
Please note that the School has 30 working days after receiving your appeal letter "or such further time as may be reasonably necessary for the Dean or his/her nominee to complete his or her determination" to finalise the appeal process.

How to make a Final Grade Appeal

To assist you in preparing a Final Grade Appeal letter please read Regulation 5.3 and download a copy of the School Appeal Submission form. You will need to use this form to submit your appeal. You can type your appeal statement directly on the form, but if you run out of room please attach another page (be sure to include your student number on any pages you add to your appeal). We have written a guide to help you put together a Final Grade Appeal.
