my univiersity has let me down in so many ways such as providing feedback and grades late,getting people who are not qualified to mark my work,ignoring me when i asked for a second look on my coursework etc(theres a lot more i cant be bothered to type).I have gone through the complaints process and despite me providing evidence about my university they have rejected my appeal saying the following: "noted that there has been a procedural irregularity in the investigation of a complaint related to your academic programme carried out by the university. However I found no evidence provided to support this"

I am now going to get a review of my appeal using the The Office of the Independent Adjudicator so i wouold like some advice as i would like to get a higher grade due to the way i have been treated by my university

You can't get a higher grade because of treatment. You can only get a higher grade because of academic merit. You would have to prove to the OIA that the failures of the university meant you didn't get the grade you prove-ably should have got. A procedural irregularity wouldn't cut it.

Contact the OIA and read the information on their website and consider whether your complaint falls within the things it will cover. I would agree with threeport, but that is not knowing what evidence you have. there are limits to what the oia can do and the types of remedy available. Awarding you a direct higher mark wont be amongst them.

Have you discussed this with someone from the SU? I'm sure you feel you've been treated unfairly, but nothing in your OP suggests the OIA will be able to do what you're wanting.

Without knowing more (what year, what grade, the circumstances, implications of a re-mark etc) we can't say what your best course of action might be.
