The 2023 Mid-Year Examinations will take place from Monday 12 June to Saturday 24 June. Please note, there are no exams on Sundays.

The 2023 End-of-Year Examinations will take place from Monday 30 October to Saturday 11 November. Please note, there are no exams on Sundays.

The 2023 Mid-Year Preliminary Examination Timetable will be available by the end of term 1 teaching.

The Examinations Office will be sending out your Final Personal Timetable via email (in June). 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.

Any adjusted location or start times will be on your Final Personal Timetable (in June). If you do not receive this information, please contact the Examinations Office.


It is your responsibility to check

the date, time and location of your exams and to download any necessary software to complete the exam.
