Assessments and Awards

The Assessment and Awards teams manage a wide range of processes which support assessments, examinations, publication of results and graduation.

The teams are here to support you with:

  • your coursework, including deadlines, extensions or applications for reassessment
  • examinations, including dates, regulations or any modification requirements you may need
  • finding support if you’re experiencing difficulties. This includes academic appeals and reassessments
  • result publication dates, accessing your results, obtaining transcripts
  • graduation and certification.

  • You must make an application for an extension in advance of an assessment’s due deadline
  • We offer you the opportunity for reassessment should you fail an academic module

Examination modifications

We appreciate that some students may require modifications to examinations, due to a disability, specific learning difficulty or mental health need.

Where there is certifiable evidence to support your request, we offer reasonable adjustments to the standard form of an examination. This includes additional time, use of a PC or small group examination rooms.

Modified examinations test the same core levels of achievement in relation to validated learning outcomes as the assessment and examination of all other students.

Applying for exam modifications

If you require that extra support, Catalyst has got you covered. Get in touch with our teams to request modifications, or even if you’ve got some questions about the process.
