It’s your right to review your exam paper – we recommend reviewing your exam if you want to appeal your mark.

Some faculties and schools have a set timetable for exam review sessions and you may have to register to attend – check with your faculty.

In the exam review, you are given a short time to review your exam paper. Exam reviews are done under exam conditions – no phones, no notes. You can look at your paper and check your answers against the mark you were given.

It’s important to check: 

  • Is the calculation of your total mark correct?      
  • Are there marks given for each question, and written feedback?     
  • Are there questions you think you answered adequately, and deserve a higher mark for?  

As soon as you finish the exam review, write down all your notes in as much detail as you can remember.
