Appealing - grading regulations changed partway through course Watch
I have just finished my degree, and gained a mark of 69.49 (0.01 away from the point at which I'd have been rounded up to a first).
I intend to appeal this grade, on the basis that twice during my degree they altered the way in which our final mark was calculated, telling us only at the start of the third year. Had they not made these alterations, I would have gotten a first. In fact, overall, there were four possible ways my final mark could have been calculated, ALL of the other three would have given me a first until they changed the rules.
I want to appeal on these grounds, and that they should not have changed the regulations for us who were already midway through our grades, but it should have come into play for those joining the university at the time only.
Does anybody happen to have any advice, or be able to point me in any kind of direction towards something which may help my case? I'm not sure, for example, if there is an overseeing governing body of all universities who would support me in my fight?
Thank you very much!
