Understanding your results and when and why you can apply for an appeal

Official results release for all students (including Coventry University, Coventry University London, CU Coventry, CU Scarborough and CU London students) will be week commencing 3rd June. 

You will be notified that your results have been released by email (your student email) and they will be updated on Solar.

Can I do anything about my marks before they are officially released?

Yes, you can prepare for an appeal if you were affected by one of the 3 grounds of appeal. The appeal form cannot be submitted until the results have been released.

Once results are formally released, you have 10 working days to submit the appeal from the date of the release.

What are the grounds for appeal?

  • Procedural Irregularity: The university made a mistake or did not follow the regulations. For example, added up marks incorrectly.
  • Improper Assessment: Your marks were affected by prejudice or bias.
  • Extenuating Circumstances: You were affected by events outside of your control and could not apply for an extension or a deferral at the time. For example, you were very ill.
