If you are unhappy with an Assessment mark given by a Gateway College tutor for a piece of work which is directly related to your qualification, such as a Portfolio submission, coursework or design piece, you have the right to appeal. You are entitled to a clear explanation of why you received that particular grade.
You must therefore, in the first instance, take it up with the tutor who awarded the grade. If you are still not happy with how your work was assessed or whether the right amount of work was assessed or whether something that affected your work was not taken into consideration, then you may have reasons for making an Academic Appeal. You may like to talk this over with your personal tutor or the Head of Faculty. Alternatively, if you have any questions regarding this policy, please come to the Exams Office – Room A103.
