Repeat Exams/Assessments and Capping
Where 'Fail', 'Incomplete' or 'Deferred' appears as the overall result on your Summer transcript of results, you are advised to contact the relevant lecturers who will provide you with feedback on your performance and inform you of the elements of the module(s) that you are required to resubmit/resit. A series of Consultation Days will be scheuled allowing students to meet with lecturers to discuss exams/assessment results - these Consultation Days will be indicated in an email from the Examinations Officer, but students must book an consultation appointment directly with the relevant academic staff involved.
Students are not permitted to retake modules which have been previously passed, or passed by compensation.

Repeating students will be automatically registered to take any written modules for the Autumn session of examinations. Repeat examinations are scheduled for xx. For repeat coursework, please confirm with the relevant academic staff involved.

The Repeat Fee is €200.00 (regardless of how many modules are to be repeated). Please complete and return the Repeat (Re-Entry) Form available on  , payment can be made using our secure Online Payment Facility. Please note, repeat results will not be released until the Repeat Fee is paid in full. 

In August 2015, NUI Galway's Academic Standing Committee agreed to introduce capping for repeat exams and assessments. Capping means that when students repeat their exams or assessments, the maximum mark they can be awarded is the pass mark for the module (i.e. 40%). The only exception for capping applies to first year students of full-time Undergraduate courses.

Do I need to have my results rechecked before I can appeal?

It is not necessary to apply for a formal recheck of an exam result before making an appeal application.

As part of an appeal application, it is necessary to provide documentary evidence that you have already received EITHER informal feedback on your performance from your lecturer or discipline OR the results of a formal recheck.

Is there a limit on the number of modules I can appeal?

No, you can apply for all modules for which an official result has been released (in line with the appeal application deadlines).

I have missed the appeal deadline. Can I still appeal?

No, late applications will not be accepted under any circumstance.

Re. previous years results:
The timeframe to make an exam appeal application is strictly defined. You can only appeal results for modules which have been officially released in the defined timeframe.
E.g. If you have received official results for 3rd Year (1st Sitting), you cannot appeal results received for 2nd Year (1st Sitting). 

Can I submit additional supporting documents after I submit appeal application?

All documents for an exam appeal must be submitted at the time of application. Students are advised that additional documents cannot be accepted.
