The Examinations Office coordinate and manage most exams at the University. Contact us if you have any queries about exam dates, timetables, overseas resits or any other exam-related queries.

Your personal resit exam timetable will will show the date and time of each exam, as well as your venue and seat number.

You can report any errors with your exam timetable by using the link within the exam timetable system (eg if you are not scheduled for the correct exams, you have exam clashes, your individual arrangements have not been put in place etc). You can also print your exam entry form, which you must bring to the exam together with your registration card.

Fees

A charge will be made for each module that requires a re-examination or re-submission of coursework, as follows:

Resit Fee
Per module £40
Masters dissertation re-submission £120
PhD £145

If you are required to pay a fee, you can pay your resit fee online. If you have not paid the fee before the payment deadline, an invoice will be raised against your student account and you will have 14 days to pay. Please note that you will not be able to register for your next period of study or graduate if you have debt on your account.

Individual arrangements

If you had individual arrangements in place for the main summer examinations, the same arrangements will apply for the resit examinations.

Accommodation

If you require accommodation during the resit period, please contact your Student Services Hub.

Resit results

The results of the resit examinations will usually be available two working days following the Board of Examiners meetings. If you have not been permitted to proceed you will be informed by letter, at the same time as the results are made available.

Extenuating circumstances

If you wish to bring to the attention of the Board of Examiners any extenuating circumstances which have affected the resit examinations, please complete and return the relevant form by the deadline date.

Reinstatement of June exam mark

You were originally given the chance to take a voluntary resit by the June/July Board of Examiners. However, the mark you obtained in September was lower than your original mark. As this was a voluntary resit andnot a compulsory resit, the Board agreed to reinstate your June mark.

If you are a second year student, you should note that only a maximum of 30 credits can be regarded as a voluntary resit. So if you had to take more than 30 credits' worth of resits in September the Board could only reinstate a maximum of 30 credits' worth of June marks.
