Making a university academic appeal

I'm looking for resources on how to write an academic appeal to a university. Has anyone here had to appeal a decision made by their uni and were you successful?

If anyone has any hints or tips it would be much appreciated!

Most of the articles online are pretty vague except this one: Writing an academic appeal

If anyone has any sample letters that would be cool as well. Or if can share why your complaint or appeal was rejected?

My friend appealed that she was 2 marks off a 2-1 at uni.
She didn't have any success with that appeal.

^^ Leeds university.

I don't know who she appealed to, I would assume her tutor or head of faculty.

disagree. sometimes, such as in this case, a bit more context may help someone tailor a more appropriate response for the OP.
the advice can alter materially if it was for a missed coursework deadline or a badly marked exam for example.

i was two marks off an A at English A level. it's a source of frustration for me 16 years on. My teachers' said they would appeal, but didn't bother in the end. Unfortunately a cut off is a cut off. I would just try to move on, depending on what it is of course.

precisely. with more context, you can begin to frame the letter, rather than pull off a template. for example, relating to accomplishments throughout their study. however no context for the type of study, the year, the appeal against what.
