2. If you are convinced that the poor appraisal was unjustified, escalate the matter to HR. It is always a better idea to have an open and frank discussion with your Human Resource manager and try to clear all your doubts.
3. What if they say, that for the period you have been appraised, there has not been much to talk about and hence a below average appraisal.

In such a scenario , the next best thing to do is-identify the learning opportunities. Upgrade your skills and education. This will help you not just in your next appraisal but also in your next job opportunity.
