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

Ordinarily a recheck can only be requested once the student has completed the Viewing of Scripts procedure.However, due to Covid-19 restrictions it is not possible to carry out Viewing of Scripts. If students require feedback on their assessment results, they should contact lecturers, during office hours.  Students must use their WIT e-mail address only.  For further information email: [email protected]

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, deadline and the application form are availble here.
