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 (e.g. international time differences). 

Your location and the adjusted start times will be on your Personal Timetable.  If you do not receive this information, please contact the Examinations Office.
