Didn’t get the results you were expecting? You may have grounds to have them reviewed! To have your assessment/exam or final unit grade reviewed, you will need to lodge an official Review with your Faculty (known as ‘Review Stage 1’). Lodging a request for review can seem a bit daunting, but it’s actually quite straightforward. We’ve broken it down for you to show you how!
The most important thing to remember is that reviews are very time sensitive. You only have 10 UNIVERSITY WORKING DAYS from the day after results for exams or a unit are released to request a Review. The University are extremely strict on this deadline, and late requests will almost always be disregarded. It might be worth contacting your Unit Coordinator/Lecturer first (especially if you are seeking feedback), as they may be able to assist you informally. HOWEVER, if you don’t receive a reply or you are unhappy with their reply please make sure you still lodge your review form within 10 UNIVERSITY WORKING days. Better to be safe than sorry!
Lodging the forms
Requesting a Review is a very simple process: just fill out the relevant form, submit it to your Faculty student office via your student email. Instructions and guidance on completing the form can be found here. Forms for reviews (Stage 1, 2 and Appeals) can be found on the UWA website: Review and Appeal of Academic Decisions Relating to Coursework Students
If you want a Review of an exam or assessment result, you need to complete a Review of Assessment Outcome Form. If you want your whole grade looked at for a unit, you will need to complete a Review of Final Grade Form.
