Year-round Examinations

These are formal examinations or in-class tests usually taking place outside of the three main examination periods due to programme structure and professional setting considerations. These are predominantly for students studying on programmes within the Faculty of Health, Social Care & Medicine and Faculty of Education.

Your module tutor will advise you of the dates and times for these exams or in-class tests either verbally or via email.

Examination Regulations

Examinations are defined as formal, timed assessments of any duration that are subject to continuous invigilation.

You must abide by the University’s code of conduct for examinations, which are outlined in this guide:  Candidate code of conduct for assessment and exams – a guide for students.   You can also find full details in  Appendix Five of the Academic Regulations.

It is your responsibility to ensure you know the time and place of your examinations. Misreading published information is not an acceptable reason for absence at an examination.

Attendance information

  • Please arrive at the examination venue in sufficient time. You can only enter the venue up to 30 minutes after the start of the examination
  • You will not have additional time to complete your examination if you are late.  Please be on time

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.

Should you require exam modifications or have any queries about modifications, please contact the Inclusion or SpLD teams. You can

You can apply for exam modifications at any time during your studies and we consider requests three times per year.  For information on submission deadlines, please contact the Inclusion or SpLD teams.  If your form is received after the deadline, we cannot guarantee your modifications will be in place for the next exam period.  This does not affect the modifications put in place for future examinations.

Academic Registry will confirm the venue in advance of each examination. If you have not received written confirmation seven days before the examinations, you must email the Examination Modifications Officer.

Module tutors co-ordinate any in-class tests which take place outside the main examination periods. If you have an agreed examination modification you should contact your module tutor and ensure they are aware of your requirements.
