    Hello,

    I was wondering if someone could tell me how long it takes for a response of an appeal to come back? Im sending an appeal but ideally would like to get a reply before the start of term/when I need to return (a week on Friday) but ive heard that id be lucky to get an outcome within a year? :confused:
    I was just wondering whether its worth rushing the appeal and sending it off as soon as possible or waiting out a few more days, I wanted to send it today but then I could do with speaking to some more people.
    Basically, has anyone got any experience with them?

    Cheers

    What's the appeal? You can't appeal a matter of academic judgement (ie an exam or essay grade) so if you are appealing against someone/people's actions then I don't think there is a standard response time. Perhaps ask the DSU?

    Im appealing because I had mitigating circumstances which werent brought to light before the exams or the resits, I know I can appeal this with the evidence I have but I just wanted some general information from somebody who has appealed before.

    I now understand it will take about 6 weeks for a response but what do I do in the meantime?
