The appeal process must be fair, without compromising the integrity of the assessment process. You, or your external academic partner, must allow at least seven working days from the release of assessment results for students to submit an appeal for results/awards and to release appeal results within a reasonable time from the date of appeal.
The Admin Manager passes the Appeal Form to the Academic Manager, who then appoints another marker (different from the first marker) to remark the student’s paper. The Academic Manager then submits the original mark, the student’s appeal and his reasons given, and the second mark given by the second independent marker to the Exam Board for decision.
Re-sitting and/or deferred sitting of assessments
If the student fails the re-test, he must either repeat the module, or seek and obtain approval to take a new module, if applicable, in order to accumulate the required number of passed modules for graduation.
The procedure for the re-test follows that for the first test, with the Academic Manager in consultation with the Principal first deciding on the appointment of the teacher for the setting and vetting of the re-test, and for the marking, etc. However due to the smaller number of students involved, it would be possible to shorten the duration of the process.
