Are you disappointed or confused by an assessment result/unit result that you have received and want to have it reviewed? Contact the DUSA Advocacy team for a free appointment to discuss a Review of Results application.
You can access the Deakin Review of results webpage here. This webpage contains information about the types of formal reviews and reasons for applying. The Faculty Committee will normally only approve an application for a review where the student provides evidence that their work was not marked in accordance with the marking criteria or that there was a misapplication of other relevant University policies or procedures. You can find out more information in the Assessment (Higher Education Courses) Procedure (see sections 77-85).
Administrative Review: This checks that all assignment and exam marks have been included and added up correctly to obtain your final mark.
Academic Review: If you believe your result is not fair, you will need to provide evidence that your work was not marked in accordance with the marking criteria or that there was a misapplication of other relevant University policies or procedures. However, simply thinking that you deserve a better mark is not grounds for review. It is important that students justify their reasons for review and also provide adequate evidence to support their application.
Applications for a Review of results must be made within 5 working days after the release of official results, unless you can show that exceptional circumstances beyond your control have prevented you from lodging your application in time. Prior to lodging an application for a review of results, it is helpful to discuss your grades with your Unit Chair.
Applications must be submitted online to your faculty. Please find your Faculty application form here along with further information regarding the process.
