I have heard from 10 of my 11 that they were successful (some were resubmitting having failed previously using a different mentor) – not sure about the 11th one (a resubmitter).
My contact seems to think that all the emails have gone out…. possibly if you haven’t heard it may be because you were not successful unfortunately, sorry to be the bringer of potential bad news – although remember Period 37 was chaotic and therefore I have a sneaky feeling a few results may be still be late – fingers crossed for you!
If you have failed don’t give up now – I know it is disheartening but often it may be because you were not given appropriate advice from a switched on mentor – and not a case that you are not good enough!May 15, 2019 at 1:28 pm
Even if a student is unsuccessful, the results should have been sent… there are many students who got result on time and were failed or referd to ACOMay 15, 2019 at 1:32 pm
The process is normally automated but things went wrong in Period 37 and that is why the results are already 2 months late – a lot of what would have been system generated had to be done manually. This is why I said earlier there may still be a few results outstanding…..
If you haven’t heard by Friday a.m. (UK time) then you should email the ACCA Brookes office.May 15, 2019 at 1:36 pm
I jst called OBU office, they said delay is due to large volume of email being sent out and to avoid any errror they are sending in batches… told me to wait until 17 mayMay 15, 2019 at 4:43 pm
OBU is saying my RAP have FAILED to achieve a pass standard, @GillianM can u share some feedback if one have been through same.
Examiner feedback will be provided by 24th May.May 15, 2019 at 5:18 pm
Sorry to hear that you have not been given a pass grade.
At this stage it is impossible to give detailed feedback because there are 9 Assessment Criteria a RAP must pass (7 for the report and one each for the SLS statement and for the Presentation). Those sections you failed will be identified on the feedback sheet and the marker will have given some indication of the weaknesses that led to the decision they reached that it was not up to the appropriate standard.
I expect it has failed on either Evaluation, Analysis and Conclusions (the most frequent cause of failure) or Information gathering and referencing (the second most common reason) or as is often the case both of these. I suggest you read the article on the Open Tuition OBU homepage on Evaluation and analysis and also consult the Open Tuition Ultimate Guide to Referencing your RAP as these may help you with these issues.
Also on the Open Tuition OBU homepage is an interview in which I comment on some general reasons for failing and on my website I have a whole article on how to avoid common mistakes – these may both be useful for you.May 15, 2019 at 5:29 pm
@GillianM Thank you for your guidance. Can i appeal arguing that my result has not been fair based on assessment criteria and when i can submit my appeal to OBU?May 15, 2019 at 6:12 pm
I have also got the same message via mail from OBU apparently..May 15, 2019 at 6:30 pm
I am really upset that emails are not displaying student names and/or ACCA reg.numberMay 15, 2019 at 6:32 pm
I have same email too. It says that the RAP i submitted did not meet their standards. What should we do @gillianmMay 15, 2019 at 8:24 pm
@farzana I don’t see how you can appeal until you have seen the feedback -as you need to see which criteria it failed on.
I agree it is disturbing that the emails do not show your name and reg.no, however I would expect your feedback to show these details.
When you get the feedback you need to read the comments. Most Topic 8 reports fail on evaluation and as the work is more descriptive and lacking depth of analysis (see Appendix 3 of the Info Pack)May 15, 2019 at 8:53 pm
@Gillian M definitely appeal will be once i get the feedback but in general i believe while completing the RAP i made sure the assessment criteria is met… my mentor also believed that i could easily get a pass.
While my friends were struggling at last moment ,they passed…May 16, 2019 at 12:40 pm
PassedMay 16, 2019 at 8:25 pm
I got an email which stated that the RAP i submitted did not meet their standards.
I did not expect this because I put so much time into my RAP
so frustatedMay 18, 2019 at 1:40 pm
I have not received the transcripts yet. Has anyone received their transcripts?May 18, 2019 at 2:02 pm
NoMay 18, 2019 at 9:19 pm
Of corse you haven’t received the transcript yet – the email specifically said :
” A hard copy of your transcript, pass letter and award confirmation letter will be sent to you in due course” – it did NOT state ‘ immediately’
So expect at least 2 – 4 weeks!May 21, 2019 at 2:15 pm
received my letter today:)May 21, 2019 at 3:29 pm
@coki888 – well you are in the UK – overseas students will probably have to wait 2- 4 weeks depending on local postal services!May 21, 2019 at 3:38 pm
oh yes. did not realise that:) sorryMay 21, 2019 at 5:23 pm
No apology necessary – I was just concerned that other students might panic unnecessarily:-DMay 21, 2019 at 7:20 pm
Also received my letter today in the UK, confirming my First Class Honours, so pleased! ?May 22, 2019 at 8:37 am
I have not received my result letter yet, I am wondering that results letter would state to confirmthe class of the degree or just for the class of the RAP class?
I have email to OBU today to request them for send me a photocopy sheet of the results as I needed the certificate so urgently but OBU certificate center told me that they can not issue my certificate until ACCA office has put the results on their system and the ACCA office has informed them that it would take a number of weeks to do so. my understand is that the result letter is only state that you are A or B or C for the RAP if I am wrong please correct me.

The letter does have both the degree classification and RAP result.
