Just received my dissertation grade and fell from first to 2:1. My dissertation was quite good but both the supervisor and reader failed me on the basis that the artefact (BSc comp sci) was not complete. By the way, physical artefact isn not as important as explanation. However, he also claims that I didn't explain it but it was all in the dissertation. The problem is that I am a mitigating student (university didn't provide support for my physical disability), and I am now being rolled over for January 2017 retake (meaning I miss graduating this year and I lose my place for masters at a different uni). The issue is that for one part of the entire project I need to upload my work for January session and then wait an entire year for graduation. I contacted the SU at my uni but they told me because both reader and supervisor agreed on the same mark, nothing can be done. However, my supervisor left university and my reader does not really like me and he automatically becomes my supervisor next yr.
Appealing this process might not help me but I am still going for it since I have nothing to lose. Anyone else in the same situation or am I the only one in this mess?
Remark or Resit or Appeal?
