Concern as students at University of Limerick get 'wrong' results

A UNIVERSITY of Limerick student who received “wrong” results last week has received his correct grades, and is set to graduate this August. 

The student, who is “happy and relieved”, received confirmation via email from UL’s Student Academic Administration that his results had been updated on the afternoon of Thursday, 20 June.

“I gave the Student Academic Administration a call every morning, and in fairness they were checking it for me, they just weren’t sure on when exactly the results would be updated,” they said.

“It’s such a large college, and when you put it into perspective it’s not exactly realistic to expect someone to be able to deal with the issue right away on the phone.”

“UL is such a reputable college that it’s such a shock that they got it wrong in the first place, you wouldn’t expect them to do that,” they added. 

Speaking of the issuing of incorrect grades, the student said: “It 100% still shouldn’t be happening, but in fairness they were great to deal with and got me sorted in the end. I just feel sorry for those who got worse results than they thought, if there are any.”

University of Limerick informed the Limerick Leader that since 75,000 grades were released on Monday, June 17, 13 grade change requests from academic departments have been made - totalling 0.02% of grades given. 

A UL Spokesperson says: “If any students have queries or concerns in relation to their grades or progression decisions, there are clear processes they can follow to appeal these or express their concerns and seek reassurances or rechecks.”
