Got your results this week? Here's everything you need to know about your results and any questions you might have.
Exam results for all UL Students are out this week! Understandably, you may have some questions about your results or even about accessing youe results. The team at UL Student Life are here to help and hopefully answer any questions you might have about results.
We have put together a quick guide with everything you need to know about results, repeats and progression and where to turn to for support.
First things first, it's important to know that UL Student Life are independent of UL and are not involved in the process of exam results or repeats. You will need to contact Academic Registry with any specific queries you have about your actual results or registration. Here is the link to topdesk: Login (topdesk.net)
How can I access my results?
You can view your transcript on the Student Portal www.si.ul.ie throughout the academic year. You will need your password and student number to access your results.
I forgot my password and can't log in to my account, how do I reset it?
To reset your password, follow these steps:
- Go to https://portal.office.com/
- Enter your email address
- Select 'Can't access your account?'
- Follow on screen instructions
How can I view my script?
If you are unhappy with your results the first step is to view your script. Exams: Viewing Your Scripts - UL
You must contact the department responsible for the module that you wish to view. Script viewings will be held on the 30th and 31st of January 2024.
How can I apply for a grade recheck?
If after viewing your script, you would like to apply for a grade re-check, you can do this from 25th January to February 9th. Grade re-checks cost €25, but this fee will be returned if the grade is changed.
Please be aware that your grade can go up or down so it might be worth waiting until you have viewed your script to progress with the re-check. It's worth noting that your grade recheck is completed by the same person who originally marked your exam.
You can apply for a grade recheck up to two weeks after the date that your examination results are officially published. The process to apply and pay can be found on this link: Grading: Grade Recheck.
It takes up to three weeks for a recheck result to be issued. If your grade recheck is successful, the card you used to pay for will have the fee refunded to it.
How do I appeal my grade recheck?
If you are not satisfied with the outcome of a grade recheck, you may appeal the decision within two weeks of receiving the recheck result. It costs €50 to appeal a grade recheck. Information and the application process can be found on this link. Grading: Appealing a Recheck.
I need help understanding my progression decision?
If you did not reach the required QCA or clear a module during the repeat exams to move into your next year, you should have received an email with a progression decision from UL Academic Registry. Please contact Academic Registry for more information through this link: Progression: Minimum Standards for Progression.
If you need to complete a link-in, further information on how to apply, cost and how to access your timetable can be found using this link:.Progression | Link-In Repeat module
I need to repeat an exam, how much will it cost?
A repeat fee costs €171 with a max of 4 repeats when you complete 2 semesters. With the option of sitting 2 repeats if you complete 1 semesters. For full details on the fees associated with repeats you can find out more on Top Desk.
Will I still graduate as normal if I have repeats?
4th year students who need to repeat an exam will graduate as part of the January graduation ceremonies, once all exams have been passed. This can be difficult for students, we completely understand. If you would like to speak to one of our team about this, you can book in with Shane or Nicole.
