Assessment Re-mark

All students have the right to request a review of an assessment if you have found the marks given were inaccurate. 

Students have 10 university days to submit their appeal, starting from the day you receive your marks.

Students can request for a re-mark if:

  • The mark was calculated incorrectly; or
  • The mark for the assessment was not based on the published marking guidelines; or
  • There was demonstrated bias affecting the assessment; or
  • The marking demonstrated wrong advice from staff teaching the unit.

Assessment re-mark process

The first step to all re-marking process is for you to discuss your concern with the marker. If this is unsuccessful, then you can request a re-mark.

This graphic demonstrates the Assessment Re-marking Process.

Re-mark formal letter

If the unit coordinator/ marker denies your request for a re-mark, you may formally write to the Head of Discipline to formally request a re-mark within another 10 university days

Your letter must highlight the reasons why your mark is inaccurate with evidence supporting it. Simply wanting more marks is not an adequate reason!

If you are unsure of your grounds for appeal or need help with writing your formal letter, get in touch with the Student Assist team to gain direction.
