An appeal is the only method by which a student can request a review of a decision made by an academic body about progression, assessment and award, as well as decisions made under several other Queen Mary policies.
Queen Mary's appeal process consists of two stages - Formal Appeal and Final Review.
Before submitting either a Formal Appeal or a Final Review, please read the guidelines and policy below for further information on whether or not you have grounds to do so.

IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ - a disagreement with a mark you received will normally be considered a challenge to the academic judgement of the examiners and will normally be automatically rejected. You should contact your school or institute in the first instance to obtain feedback to understand why you received the marks you did. Your school or institute can also perform clerical checks to ensure that there have been no errors in the inputting of marks.
You are strongly advised to talk to your school or institute before submitting a Formal Appeal. Please do not email the Principal. You can also seek advice from the Advocacy and Representation officer in the Students' Union.
Please note that the following are NOT valid grounds for appeal:
