What an academic year it was…phew! But we are excited you came out of it unscathed despite all the changes in the mode of academic delivery and guess what? You got through your exams too!
So it’s the time of the year again where after putting in all your efforts into the academic year, exam and assessment results are released and we have put together some useful information to assist you with getting your results and further steps if you have any questions or concerns. So you’ve got nothing to worry about, we’ve got you!
- Check your TU Dublin email to find out when the results are available – there isn’t one release date for all students. You access results by clicking here and logging on with your student number and six-digit password. If you have difficulties with the email/login contact your local Exams office.
- When the results are published you may have queries about the marks you got, especially if you’re surprised or disappointed. So, the first thing you should do is Get Feedback. Even if you are pleased with the outcome, it’s always useful and it’s Your Right as set out the TU Dublin City Campus General Assessment Regulations.
- At present because of restrictions due to COVID – 19, each School is making specific arrangements to facilitate virtual Script viewing and getting feedback, and these will vary. You should contact your School for details or if you don’t know who to contact email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- It’s important to be aware of the DEADLINES; ‘viewing of exam scripts’ and ‘provision of feedback,’ is normally scheduled within FOUR DAYS of the publication of results.
Email us if you’re having difficulties or need more information email@example.com
When a student requests to have their work re-checked the lecturer goes back over the student’s answers to each question attempted were marked, added up correctly and recorded accurately.
- The paper is not re-read. No change is made to the original allocation of marks. The totaling of the marks is simply re-checked.
- Requests for re-check should be made within 3 days of viewing the script by filling the attached form.
- The re-check fee is €15 per subject. Once you have submitted your form by email to the relevant Examinations Office, they will follow-up with you regarding the fee.
- When a student requests to have their work remarked the examiner will re-read the exam paper and make amendments to the original marks where appropriate.
- This may mean that the final result will increase or decrease.
- Requests for Re-mark should be made within 5 days of viewing a script or 2 days of a re-check by filling in the attached form.
- The re-mark fee is €60 per subject/module. Once you have submitted your form by email to the relevant Examinations Office, they will follow-up with you regarding the fee.
If you want to dispute the decision of the Examination Board in relation to marks given in any exam or assessment you can submit an Examination Appeal.
Grounds for Appeal are as follows:
- That the General Assessment Regulations have not been properly implemented.
- That circumstances exist which may not have been specifically covered by these Regulations.
- That there is new, attested, documented and relevant valid information that was not made available to the Exam Board for justifiable reasons, and therefore not considered.
An Appeal must be lodged with the relevant Examinations Officer or College Manager within seven working days of the date scheduled for the viewing of scripts, accompanied by a fee of €75.00. The Form is available here.
You can find more information on these forms and procedures here.
If you need help filling out any of the forms or have a question please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wish you the very best in your results and a lovely summer ahead! xx
