Student Appeal System

What are appeals?

Appeals refer to your formal request for review of grades scored in the continuous assessment (MTA and TMA) and the final exam.  You may appeal against the grades awarded to you in your assignment as per the formal procedures of appeal set by the university.

 

Conditions For Academic Appeal Against
The Continuous Assessment (TMA or MTA)

Students may appeal continuous assessment grades by filling the online appeals form within one week from the announcement of the continuous assessment results. The student will also attach any relevant documents.

  • Copies of the appeal form will automatically be sent to the Branch Examination Committee (BEC) and to Student Affairs Office and branch Quality Assurance Unit for follow up and monitoring.

  • Appeals on the continuous assessment (TMAs or MTAs) are dealt with at the academic department level. The course coordinator and respective course tutor will examine the appeal and all relevant documents and take a decision whether to uphold the appeal or to reject it. If the appeal is upheld, the decision will be sent to the branch Director for approval of “change of grade”. A copy of the decision will be sent to the Student Affairs Office. The Student Affairs Office will notify the student with the final decision in writing. Carbon copies of the decision will be sent to the Assistant Director for Academic Affairs, the Branch Course Coordinator, and the Branch Quality Assurance Coordinator.

  • If the student is dissatisfied with the decision to dismiss the appeal, he or she may appeal through the Branch Director to Faculty Examination Committee (FEC) within one week of notification of the decision in question.
