Do I want to appeal my classification?
If you intend to appeal or you are pursuing an appeal you must not have your degree conferred either at a ceremony or in absentia. This means that you must not attend a ceremony and must ensure that your certificate is not posted to you. If you do, your appeal will be void. Please refer to the Students' Handbook for full details of the Appeals Procedure and the action that you need to take. You should contact us if you intend to appeal your results at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can ensure that your certificate is not posted out.
