The Examinations Office will be sending out your Final Personal Timetable via email. This will include the date/time, duration, format, room, and the exam conditions for each of your exams.
Please make sure that you check the dates and times of your examinations carefully. Students are expected to be available to sit their exams at the dates/times scheduled unless there are reasons outside of their control.
Your location and any adjusted start times will be on your Final Personal Timetable. If you do not receive this information, please contact the Examinations Office.
Prepare for your exams
Infringement of the Examination Regulations is very serious. Please inform yourself.
If you are affected by an exam clash, alternative arrangements will be made for you.
Coping with the unexpected
There are two categories of Special Consideration, for assessment and late discontinuation.
If you miss an exam you must contact the Examinations Office as soon as possible.
If you have a temporary or permanent disability you can apply for special exam arrangements.
