Assessment R​emarks

A remark is done only when—

  • the student has sought and received feedback about their performance on the assessment from the Course Coordinator or lecturer concerned (or has viewed their examination paper and model answers/written comments/etc.); and
  • the student, after receiving feedback, provides in writing a sound academic case to show how the mark awarded does not reflect their performance with respect to the published assessment criteria for that assessment (see your Electronic Course Profile, Blackboard, or contact your course coordinator).
  • Applications which do not provide a sound academic case will not be approved (in accordance with section 4.3 of PPL 3.10.10 Assessment Re-mark). Please provide any additional and relevant information in support of your request.

Request for Assessment Remark application is on My Advisor.

The desire for extra marks to achieve a higher final course grade is not sufficient grounds for a re-mark, nor is performance in other courses.

Assessment Viewing Register

  • Register for exam viewing sessions here.
  • End of semester examination papers will be available for viewing the first and second week of the next semester but you will need to register.
  • Mid-semester exam papers and other assessment are available for viewing at the discretion of the lecturer. If they are going to do this, they will tell you in class.

    Students are reminded that you MUST bring your Student ID card to each examination and present this on entry to the examination venue.
