In exceptional circumstances, candidates may appeal for a rewrite of a written examination or skills evaluation if the original mark is less than 60% or “Fail” for a skills evaluation. A candidate may also appeal an unsuccessful rewrite.

NOTE: Before submitting your appeal, check with the educational institution or department who hosted your exam or evaluation for their specific requirements and procedures. Students of Lakeland College who wish to appeal should contact the Chair of the Lakeland College Emergency Training Centre.

Step 1   You must submit an Application to Appeal to the Registrar at the OFC within 30 days of the release of the test scores. The appeal must contain:

  • the marks attained on the unsuccessful attempt;
  • why you think you were unsuccessful (include all specific details and evidence to support your story);
  • why you think you deserve a rewrite; and
  • the measures you will take to ensure success on the rewrite if one is approved.

Step 2   Submit your signed appeal paperwork through regular mail or in an email. Appeals received after 30 days will not be considered.

The OFC Registrar will rule on the appeal after completing an investigation and will inform the candidate by email as soon as possible. It is the candidate’s responsibility to ensure his or her contact information is correct. The Registrar’s decision is final and additional appeals will not be considered.
