Reassessment procedures

Reassessments include resit examinations and re-submission of project, course work or remedial work. 

Students who study on one of the University's campuses are reminded of the University policy that examinations must be taken at the campus at which the student is studying. Students must note that this includes examinations during the December and Spring diets, and Resit examinations scheduled during the Autumn diet (ie the diet which takes place over the summer vacation).

Registering for reassessments

You are required to complete and submit a reassessment application form.

Payment for reassessments

The reassessment fee is £35 per course.

Payment for reassessments taking place in semester 2 should be made on submission of the reassessment application form.
