Assessments and Examinations

I am unable to attend/I have missed an exam due to mitigating circumstances, what should I do?

You should follow the EMC (Exceptional Mitigating Circumstances) procedure. Contact a member of the Assessment & Results Team for the relevant form.

I am on holiday during the reassessment period and have an exam, what should I do?

We set examination periods at the beginning of the academic year and publish them here. It is your responsibility to ensure you submit work or present yourself for assessments and examinations in line with the published deadlines/examination timetables. This includes the summer re-assessment period.  We strongly advise that you consult the examination timetables before booking any holidays.

Please note:
If you are unable to submit coursework by the required deadline, you should approach your tutor in the first instance in order to ask for an extension.   Alternatively, please follow the EMC procedure.
