University remarking procedures Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
what other academics have supported your claim? if academics at your school support this, then there is your evidence and you should follow through. keep fighting for yourself. but i'm not sure, is this dependent on your overall student experience or your specific physical health that you think the university should consider? you need to decide.

Hi! I am a second-year law student at the University of Exeter and this year there have been a large array of complaints about some of the grades that have been returned. I along with other students have requested the module grades get remarked but we have been rejected due to it being against 'University Procedure'. The marks received are wrong and so many students are sure of it. This is not just through self-belief but past evidence of grades and opinions from other academics and lawyers themself! I feel so helpless and ignored by the University, not to mention I believe I have been treated substantially differently due to suffering from problems with physical health. I am so lost and NEED advice!? Is this a procedure at other Russell Group Universities?
Sorry to say this, but students often think they "deserve a higher mark", but you need to ask the question, how many of these pieces of work have you marked as a professional, likely zero. The marker however will likely have seen hundreds, possibly thousands of similar bits of work over multiple years so will have a very different benchmark for quality than you. This means its vitally important to understand the feedback on your work and use it to identify what to do better next time.
