Feedback Fortnight

Feedback Fortnight banner Representing your academic interests

Feedback is vital in allowing you to improve as students as well as preparing you for future assesments. We want to help equip you with everything you need to get the best out of your time at Newcastle.

It’s easy to forget about exams once you leave the exam venue. However, exam feedback can help you to think back to what you wrote and to reflect on how things might have gone better, this is much more productive than worrying about marks without any guidance to accompany it.

Feedback Fortnight is a two week campaign, dedicated to giving you the information to gain valuable exam feedback.

1.Receive Your Feedback

  • This can either be individual feedback, or group feedback to the whole cohort.
  • You can request individual feedback on written/PC exams, you have a legal right to this!

2.Read Through Your Feedback

  • It is important you understand the feedback you are given.
  • You can use this to see how you can improve your work.
