Final Mark Re-Check
For a Final Mark Re-Check, the instructor ensures that no question was overlooked, the addition of marks was correct, and all term marks were calculated correctly. On the request form, you must identify the possible errors or omissions.
A request may result in a raised mark, lowered mark or no change. For both re-grade or re-checks, the instructor has the authority to re-grade other questions on the exam if they find it necessary.
It is essential that you view your exam or purchase a copy to identify possible mark calculation errors. Re-check requests will not be accepted unless specific errors have been identified.
This should not be used to have an exam question regraded. Please see the Final Exam Re-Grade service below for details on re-grading specific exam questions.
Final Exam Re-Grade
For a Final Exam Re-Grade, the instructor will re-grade the questions indicated on your request form. For each question you would like the instructor to re-grade, you must include how you believe the question was not graded properly. Any re-grading of your paper will be done in a manner consistent with the rest of the class.
This may result in a raised mark, lowered mark or no change. The instructor has the authority to re-grade other questions on the exam if they find it necessary to do so.
