Re-assessment procedures

Re-assessments 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 re-assessments

If you are required to be re-assessed in August 2014 you will be automatically registered for the re-assessment.

If you are required to be re-assessed in December 2014, you will be required to complete and submit a re-assessment application form.

Payment for re-assessments

The re-assessment fee is £35 per course.

If you have completed a re-assessment of any kind in August 2014 you will be invoiced for the full amount.

Payment for re-assessments taken place in December 2014 will need to be made on submission of the re-assessment application form.
