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.
