Before anything, you can email the director of first year mathematics studies (Jonathan Kress) to see if you can look at your paper first. Or ask him about what options there are.

Try to keep things within the UNSW school of maths and stats before going through official UNSW procedures.

Yep, I'll do that as soon as the final marks are out. Even though there's a very small chance that the final marks have changed, I'm still hoping for something to have happened! Would you happen to know whether the university is open to letting student see their final paper? Thanks for all your help :)

Each school has their own policy regarding this sort of stuff. It's not UNSW's management that is responsible for this. Generally the staff at UNSW maths are pretty nice and people have been permitted to see their paper on request.

Any HD is really good! That's a great mark - nice job.

Basically, from here onwards, treat a High Distinction as a band 6, except usually <10% of the cohort get that high. There is no grade higher than HD.

The exact percentage varies depending on your degree/courses, but it always means at the upper end. For many degrees (law would be included in this I imagine) HDs are definitely not common.
