Examinations and assessment guidelines
Examination board guidelines and assessment procedures (UG and PG) spring-autumn
Examination board guidelines and assessment procedures have been reviewed and updated for the operation of examination boards and publishing of assessment results, during spring and autumn 2020. Previous versions of these guidelines should be disregarded.
All assessment and examination decisions taken in order to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 have been approved by the University Executive and the Senate and are detailed within the paper: ‘Procedures and Actions to Mitigate the Impact of COVID-19: Examinations and Assessment’. Consequently, guidance documents have been produced for students, external examiners and examination boards as detailed below.
Guidance for students
All continuing and graduating students have been given access to a set of student guides which answer key questions and provide guidance on, for example, coursework completion, examinations and how decisions are to be made about Semester 2 courses.
Guidance for external examiners
A guidance note for external examiners has been produced to help them undertake their role in the context of the University’s arrangements to mitigate the impact on COVID-19 on examination and assessment.
Guidance for examination boards
Exceptional arrangements are in place to manage Semester 2 assessments and the operation of examination boards. As a result, new guidance has been produced and existing guidance updated. Please refer to the ‘Recent Revisions to Policies and Procedures’ document for a summary of recent changes and introductions. All examination board guidelines and assessment procedures (UG and PGT) are listed below.
