You can see more detail for each comment by hovering the mouse pointer over each. There is also an area for overall feedback (see below).

Students may request that an assessment task be re-marked, in its original form, in circumstances where the student presents a case arguing that the original marking was unfair or inconsistent with marking guidelines. This request must be directly addressed to the unit coordinator, with a copy to the Head of School, by the student within 10 working days of receipt of the original marked assessment task.
The Unit Coordinator is responsible for arranging the re-marking of the assessment task.
Only a single re-mark will be permitted and the result of the re-mark will be recorded as the final mark for that assessment task, irrespective of its position relative to the original mark.
