Provide a service that helps you understand if you should question their grade. A friend of mine recently received feedback that made no sense. They had said that to improve he should include X, Y, Z but when he looked at his submission he had included X and Y but the marker had missed it. I don't know if this is common but they were told that it's not common practice to change marks but the marker had obviously overlooked this which I presuming would have impacted their grade. He couldn't find anyone to talk to this about and felt a bit helpless and cheated by the system.


Here, you can view the complete set of official responses from the sabbatical officers regarding this submission.

Hi. My recommendation would be to raise this with your Deputy Head of School as a system would contain too many variables and wouldn't be consistent. Your friend can also submit a university appeal which may be able to support with checking feedback and amending marks. I do apologise for the inconvenience.
