If you have not performed well in your exams or have failed to meet an agreed target, the Board of Examiners in your School may request that you attend a Student Support Meeting.
These meetings take place within 10 days of the publication of your examination results. Please check your university email address regularly to ensure you are aware that you have been called to a Student Support Meeting and the time and date of your meeting.
You will be invited to a meeting if your academic progress gives cause for concern or you:
It is an opportunity for you to meet with members of staff from your School who will fully explain the decision of the Board of Examiners and discuss any issues or concerns you may have relating to your results, resits or progression. They will also provide you with advice on the options available to you and the numerous support services available throughout the university and the appeals procedure.
You will be provided with a signed record of the meeting that will contain the advice given to you by your School, including any agreed targets.
No, the meeting is an opportunity to explain the Board of Examiners decision. If you consider that you meet the grounds of appeal, you should submit your appeal form and any supporting documentation before the appeal deadline. Please read the Student Guide to the Academic Appeals Regulations (Taught Programmes).
