University Examination Review Procedure workshop 2024 new [Places] 14:00 - 14:50 New Wing Seminar Room, Second Floor, Student Services Centre, Bene't Street, CB2 3PT

A briefing on the University's Examination Review Procedure.

This formal University procedure is used by students to request a review where:

-  a procedural irregularity in the examination process has adversely impacted on your examination results; or
-  demonstrable bias or the perception of bias has occurred within the examination process; or
-  the withdrawal of academic provision, which had adversely impacted on your examination results and of which the Examining Board were not aware [this ground is for students whose assessment results have been adversely affected by industrial action].

Find out or remind yourself what to do if you receive a request to respond to an examination review, or if a student is asking you about requesting an examination review.

This session includes case studies and discussion to ensure that examiner decisions are robust.
