    Hi guys!
    Happy to be on board :)

    One of my grades (55.5%) is currently under appeal and the Law Department at my uni is unlikely to share the result with me before the applications' deadlines come up.

    Would you suggest me to:
    1. Write down the grade and then note in the relevant box that the grade is currently under appeal? If so, would you also mention why I appealed?
    2. Write down something like "pending" and then explain in the relevant box?

    Similarly, I have mitigating circumstances which apply to exams I have taken in my first year as well as in my second year but they are very different in nature. How would you advise me to proceed when explaining them in the relevant box in terms of length, importance, detail etc.?

    Thank you for reading this, I really appreciate it!!
    Giulia

    Hi Giulia,

    I would suggest copying and pasting this question to @Jessica Booker on the ‘ask a graduate recruiter anything’ thread. She’s an experienced recruiter and will definitely provide you with a great answer.

    Best,
    Zhang
