A recheck, which involves confirmation by a second internal examiner, is designed to ensure that all elements submitted for assessment/exam were considered and assessed, and that no errors occurred in the recording, collating, or combining of marks. The recheck also confirms that the summary mark presented to the examination board was correct.
An appeal is an opportunity for you to appeal the result of an exam/assessment on one of the following grounds:
Neither an appeal nor a recheck involves reassessment of the exam paper(s) or other submitted material.
There is a fee of €70 for an appeal, or €30 per department for a recheck. These are refunded if your appeal/recheck is successful.
