Repeat Learner registration

The closing date for registration of Repeat Learner modules was 11th October, 2019. Closing date for repeat learner modules for the Autumn session is 30th June, 2020. Late registration for repeat exams will not be available this year to ensure that all correct HSE guidance, including contact tracing, can be carried out. 

We recommend a discussion with your course leader particularly if your repeat module is for example: a laboratory module where attendance is mandatory, a dissertation or project where supervision is required or a continuous assessment module.

Please note: Ordinarily Repeat students are not entitled to a refund of fees paid unless there are compelling and compassionate circumstances arising.

APPEALS

The appeals procedure has been modified so that matters which are more properly the concern of the examination boards are processed by them, and only substantive irregularity in the process is formally appealed. The basis of this system is that any mitigating factors of which the student is aware prior to the examination must be processed through the examination board.

For the appeals' procedure, fees, deadline and the application form, please click here.

Please note that the following statements do not qualify as the appeal grounds:

‘I thought I should have done better’
‘I put a lot of effort into this subject’
‘Everybody in class has failed this exam’
‘I feel I deserve to pass’
‘My other marks are much higher’
‘The exam was harder than I expected’
‘My lecturer did not like me’
‘I want someone else to check my paper’
‘I wasn’t well for this exam’
‘The lecturer didn’t prepare me sufficiently’

In some of these cases, before results are discussed at the Examination Board, Mitigating Circumstances procedure may apply. In other cases listed above, students should seek feedback on their performance from the relevant lecturer, or seek clarification on matters of concern from a Course Leader, Head of Department or Head of School.

Comments of a personal nature or complaints against an individual should not form part of the appeal. Where a candidate wants to make a complaint against another individual, they should in a first instance discuss it with the relevant Head of Department. In this regard attention is drawn to the Institute’s Respect and Dignity Policy.

 


RECHECKS

A recheck can only be requested once the student has completed the Viewing of Scripts procedure. To recheck the examination materials shall mean to verify that all sections of the examination materials (including continuous assessment) have been marked and that these marks have been entered and combined accurately in the results sheets used in arriving at the final examination result.

Important Note : A recheck does not involve an academic re-examination or re-evaluation of the material presented by the student. It is simply a re-verification that all materials submitted were indeed marked and that the total of marks were correctly calculated and notified.

Recheck proceedures, information on fees, dealine and the application form are availble here.

The Academic Council had previously determined that COVID-19 is a valid mitigating circumstance in all cases and have formally added it to the list of conditions qualifying for mitigation. 

Deferrals were automatically granted to candidates, at the semester 2 examination boards, where the student had not attempted the assessment and/or had not achieved a passing grade. 

Please click here for further information.

Candidates that have achieved a passing grade in their Semester 2 2019/2020 academic year module and seek mitigation will have the autumn sitting count as their first attempt and will have that mark used as their final grade in all cases even if it is lower. If you have passed a module and opt to take the autumn repeat assessment, then that result will be the final mark you achieve regardless of whether it is higher or lower that the semester 2 assessment result. 

Please note the above when applying for a deferral under mitigating circumstances, to apply please click here. For further information please contact your School Office.
