Degree Classification

Were you expecting a 2:1 and received a 2:2?  Or worse?  Sometimes, there are valid reasons for a drop in a degree classification.  However, there are times when this drop is not justified.  If you believe you should have got the grade you were seeking but did not because of valid extenuating circumstances, then you may be able to challenge the degree classification.  You may have not received the degree for other reasons such as a miscalculation of marks, a grade missed from a transcript or a failure by the examination board to properly apply its calculation procedures.

The Examination Board of any university will have clear procedures that they must follow when determining the degree classification for any student.  At the end of your final year, once you have completed your assignments and examinations, the Examination Board of your course will meet.  At that meeting it will decide on the degree classification for each and every student on your course.  For borderline candidates, there are certain procedures that must be followed.  The border line procedures must by applied properly and each and every student’s public law rights are engaged in the process.  For those students that have not performed in a way that was expected, the Examination Board is expected to actively consider why.

If you believe you have not got the classification you expected, then contact us and we can assist you in exploring any challenge to the university under its Academic Appeal procedures.
