Step 1: Informal Review
If you are confused as to why you received the mark you did for an assessment or examination, you should speak with your lecturer about this as soon as possible.
This can be done by requesting an informal review. During the informal review meeting you will have a chance to discuss your results, ask questions and resolve any misunderstandings.
We encourage you to take the Assessment, Exam or Unit Result Informal Review application, which can be downloaded from the Forms page with you to a face-to-face meeting or have it at hand for an on-line or telephone meeting.
If, at the end of the informal review meeting, you are still dissatisfied, you may request a Formal Review of your assessment, examination or final result (step 2) assuming you have grounds to do so.
The University’s Admission, Enrolment and Academic Progression rules Annexure 1, outlines the grounds on which a formal review application can be made. These rules also list the grounds that are not suitable for consideration. Please read these carefully to ensure you meet the grounds to proceed to a formal review.
Step 2: Formal Review
To request a formal review, you must complete the Assessments, Examination and Unit Result Formal Review form, this can be done using the on-line form. A supporting statement, explaining the grounds on which you are requesting the formal review (including any available evidence) and the Informal Review Application Form must accompany the Formal Review application.
