Can I appeal if I believe that I deserve a better mark/classification?

Can I apply for an appeal if I disagree with the feedback and mark given in the assessment?
This falls within the criteria of Academic Judgement, and it is not a ground for appeals. The Appeals Committee, does not have the remit to re-assess a task nor does it delve into content of academic tasks.
Can I apply for an appeal if, I am awaiting a resit / re-attempt?
No, you cannot lodge an appeal until the official mark of the resit is published.
Can I apply for an appeal I am awaiting results from a revision of paper?
No, results from a revision of paper cannot be appealed against as the process itself entails that the assessment is blind-marked by an external examiner.
