The Top Ten are ten issues the SU tackles each year, based on what students want. It is based on feedback from the Student Opinion Survey, various other surveys, and feedback from students.
One example for the year 2013/14 is that there was no access issue reporting mechanism available to students. The SU campaigned on this and there is now a Gold Button reporting mechanism.
Another example is Anonymous Marking. Research nationally shows that students from certain groups or with certain characteristics can see their grades go up significantly when anonymous marking is introduced.
