Script Viewing 

In lieu of script viewings for Spring Semester 2020, all Module Leaders will be uploading exam reports onto their relevant SULIS sites on Monday 6th July. Please logon to SULIS to attain these reports.

This applies to all Law modules.

Further to this, if students wish to get a grade breakdown of their module please fill in a Grade Breakdown Request Form and return it to Carol.Huguet@ul.ie by Tuesday 14th July 2020 at 5pm. 

 

Grade rechecks/appeals will proceed as normal (via SAA/Academic Registry).

What should a student do if they are unhappy with a grade?

Should a student consider that they may have been assigned an incorrect grade, a clear procedure is provided for in the Academic Regulations (link above). The student may request a recheck of the grade within two weeks of the relevant semester results becoming available. To request a recheck, the student must complete the appropriate form (available from the Student Academic Administration Office) and pay a fee.

After receiving the appropriate form, the relevant  academic staff member will then (and only then)  review the script for accuracy. The recheck request form will be returned to the Student Academic Administration Office with the decision noted on it (including any change of grade). It should be noted that, should the grade recheck so determine, grades may be changed to lower or higher grades.

You are required to follow this process. You should not therefore directly contact the relevant academic staff member in respect of a grade recheck.
Should a student not be satisfied with the outcome of the grade recheck, they may appeal the matter to the Head of Department responsible for the module. The appeal must be made within two weeks of the publication of the grade recheck result. To appeal a grade recheck, the student must complete the appropriate form (available from the Student Academic Administration Office) and pay a fee. The appeal must be on stated grounds and should include a full and complete statement on why the student believes the grade awarded is incorrect. It should be noted that, should the grade appeal so determine, grades may be changed to lower or higher grades.

You are required to follow this process. You should not therefore directly contact the relevant academic staff member in respect of a grade appeal.
