If you believe that an error was made in the calculation of your mark, you may seek a recheck. A recheck does not involve re-assessing your work. It is simply a check to make sure that all components of your work were properly included in the overall result.
A recheck must be submitted within 2 weeks of the publication of the official ratified examination results, and the form and further information can be found here.
You have the right to appeal an exam result.
Please note that an appeal is not a remarking of your paper. An appeal can only be made on one of two grounds:
- If there is evidence of substantive irregularity in the conduct of the examination
- If there are circumstances which the Programme Examination Board was not aware of when its decision was taken.
If you are considering an appeal, please read the details of the appeal process available on the Registrar’s Office website at https://www.maynoothuniversity.ie/registrar/examination-recheck
Note: Requests for Exam Appeals must be submitted within 3 weeks of publication of official ratified results.
Please include your student number in all correspondence.

Composition of the award mark
Your award mark is calculated as the weighted average of all of your years of study, excluding first year and years of study abroad. The weighting is adjusted so that the final year contributes 70%. This is shown in the table below.
