Grounds for appeal
There are 2 grounds for appeal.
1. extenuating circumstances relating to ill health or personal difficulties which the student was unable to raise prior to or during the escalation procedure. You need to present evidence of this
2. The information held by the faculty relating to your attendance and/or engagement is incomplete or inaccurate, and you were not in a position to correct this information at an earlier stage. You need to present evidence of this
For claims on the grounds of extenuating circumstances, you will need to evidence that the circumstances prevented you from attending. You also need to explain and evidence why you couldn't have told them at the time. These could be the same reason
If you appeal because information held by the faculty relating to your attendance and/or engagement is incomplete or inaccurate you still need to evidence that you have been in attendance.
