marking procedures

The Marking Procedures set out the University procedures for the submission, marking and feedback of assessed work. The procedures cover the following areas:

  • mode of submission
  • marking illegible scripts
  • marking where a student has not followed the instructions of an examiner
  • penalties for the late submission of assessed work
  • the definitions and arrangements for moderation and double marking
  • requirements for the consideration of marked samples by External Examiners (changes from 2021-22)
  • the marking arrangements for collaborative provision
  • procedures for feedback to students on marked assessments.

The Marking Procedures were last reviewed and re-approved in July 2021 for implementation from September 2021.

You can find the Marking Procedures applicable in academic year 2020-21, as well as the revised edition applicable from 1 September 2021 onwards, under Downloads.
