Update on the appeal process for a 0% mark awarded during the October/November 2020 exams

On 28 December 2020, we requested students to make use of the appeal form if they wanted to appeal their 0% mark. Our preliminary assessment of the appeals received showed that most of the matters were unrelated to the 0%. As a result, the university decommissioned the appeals process and engaged in an independent review of all the 0% awarded. No student will, therefore, receive a formal outcome of their appeal. 

Some students have since had their marks reinstated and some have received an additional assessment opportunity in January/February 2021. 

Students who have received or will still receive a warning letter from the Unisa Disciplinary Office and would like to appeal the warning letter should send an e-mail to A formal disciplinary proceeding is required to overturn a warning letter and will be initiated on receipt of any appeal.
