Mam as sls should my true experience in making the project that is why I am also discussing about my disability in it.Now the question which I want to ask is when I submit my project this November should I submit my disability certificate and I’d card picture with it or not? Reply me as soon as possible thanks in advanceSeptember 16, 2018 at 10:36 am
Normally allowance for disability for the RAP and the SLS only extends to dyslexia. However if generally there is a particular reason to bring a disability to the marking team’s attention e.g. possibly in relation to challenges in coping with the RAP requirements or the effect of ill health impacting on achieving objectives and you are mentioning these in the SLS then you could include relevant medical documents. This seems to be what you are doing so include the medical certificate as an appendix as evidence of your condition.September 17, 2018 at 8:07 am
Mam I don’t have dyslexia I have a disability due to cerebral palasy should I discuss it in my sls ?October 23, 2018 at 11:16 pm
if you could assist me with this email from my academic officer, it would be highly appreciated. Does this email mean i have passed or failed?

You have been advised that your recent RAP has been referred to an Academic Conduct Officer because of doubts as to its originality raised during the marking process.
Please find attached a letter, which is self-explanatory. Please respond to my email address. Please do not contact the ACCA office at Oxford Brookes as they are not involved in this process at all and will, therefore, be unable to assist you.
The office will release your results as soon as possible.October 24, 2018 at 7:46 am
It looks like a standard letter when your work has been referred for consideration by the marking team to the Academic Conduct Office. It refers to a second letter “Please find attached a letter, which is self-explanatory. Please respond to my email address” so presumably sets out the details about your referral.
Pending an investigation your result is deferred which means that only after the ACO has completed this investigation will your result be released. So then you will find out whether it has passed or failed. If the investigation shows that you have breached the student academic regulations then a penalty can be imposed dependent on what the infringement was but can be the work is given a ‘zero grade’ which means a fail for everything (but is still counted as a submission attempt). Sometimes too a penalty resubmission fee is imposed -normally double the standard amount so over GBP 600 for the next submissionOctober 24, 2018 at 1:36 pm
the letter states the following :
‘Having closely examined the evidence available to me, i have concluded that the similarities between you and the other student may have been caused by you giving access to your work, which is bad academic practice. However, Im able to inform you that you have been exonerated and i will advising the admin office to release your result.’
Does this mean I can still fail?October 24, 2018 at 2:21 pm
It means precisely what it says – the ACO Officer has decided that this is bad academic practice. Your result will be released – the officer appears not to have changed the grade but until the result is released you will not know whether it is a pass or a fail. (If it is a fail you will be given the marker feedback in the normal way and if it is a pass you will eventually receive your certificate).October 26, 2018 at 2:10 pm
if the project that i submitted in may 2018 failed(because of SLS), can I submit the same project in may 2019 submission obviously with a new SLS instead of submitting it in november 2018 as i do not have funds right now to submit.October 26, 2018 at 11:53 pm
Yes you do not have to resubmit immediately (unless you are about to reach the 10 year expiry date). The report grade will be carried over and therefore you only have to fulfil the SLS requirements and then you will get a full pass. (Unfortunately the full fee is still applicable regardless of what was failed and needs to be resubmitted).November 22, 2018 at 10:28 am
So my result was deferred and after multiple emails to and from my ACO, I have been exonerated as off 15 November 2018.
My ACO also wrote in the same email that my result and feedback would be released in due course.
However no subsequent email from them in the past 7 days. Hence I still dont have my result. Since the OBU portal isn’t working (I cant sign in), is there any other place where I can get my result from?
Still dont know if its a Pass or Fail. :/November 22, 2018 at 5:14 pm

You will not be ble to access it because as you say the whole system is down.
You could email the ACO and ask them nicely if it passed or failed – having been an ACO myself I normally knew the grade. Though I doubt they would have access to the feedback, they might be prepared to tell you whether it passed or failed.
