What is the RAP Resubmission process?
The results for the Oxford Brookes Degree degree in Applied Accounting are released in March and September. I wish you good luck and I hope that you all receive the good news and pass!
The following rules apply to the RAP resubmission. The first table lists which part of the RAP you should resubmit, and if you failed your RAP, you must also review the Second table.
If you have failed your RAP, ensure you familiarise yourself with the resubmission process. The process itself is not difficult or complicated, but there are certain points that I would like to highlight to you in this article.
• All students have three attempts to pass their RAP. If you do not pass after a third submission, then, unfortunately, you will no longer be eligible to complete the BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting degree and you will not be able to resubmit.
• When you resubmit, you must be eligible to submit in that period.
• You are NOT required to resubmit at the next submission period. Students often find benefit from taking the time to consider what went wrong.
• Anonymous marking is adopted, so please identify yourself in any documentation using only your ACCA number and not your name.
• Resubmissions will always require at least the full project Fee to be paid. Students who have been found guilty under the Academic Conduct procedures may be asked to pay a higher fee for resubmission.
In order to resubmit, you need to log on to the submission portal. You will be prompted to register for the next submission period. A guide is available on the web pages.
Resubmission of the Research Report (RR)
You can choose either to keep the same topic or choose a new topic from the current topic list. If you decide to change the company you are researching and analysing or the topic then the RAP passes previously achieved will not be carried forward.
When resubmitting your RAP you must include the RAP Resubmission Statement of 500 words, explaining how you have addressed the feedback provided by the marker and moderator and where you have made changes.
Resubmission of the Skills and Learning Statement (SLS)
If you passed the SLS in full (both the Skills Learning Statement and the Presentation), you don’t have to submit them again. If you passed one of the SLS sections, you should not amend that section.
If you passed your SLS, you don’t have to have mentor meetings again. However, you may find it useful to meet with your mentor if:
a) You decide to submit a different Research Report and/or
b) You generally feel that you need help from your mentor.
You do not have to use the same mentor for a resubmission. If you failed your SLS, you don’t need to have three further meetings with your mentor but you must meet them at least once. This will help you re-consider where you went wrong in your SLS.
