Important: Examinations and other Assessments
Issued: Wed, 13 Apr 2016 08:39:00 BST
The Senate Office has issued important information regarding examinations and other assessments.
To: All Staff
Information for students on examinations has been circulated to students and is available in the form of this Senate Office PDF document.
This reminds students about prohibited materials in examination rooms and also about procedures relating to illness or other circumstances which either prevent students from attending examinations (or handing in assessments), or affect their performance in them.
We are continuing to reinforce the importance of submitting this information on time (within 7 days of the affected assessment) to try and reduce the numbers delaying release of information on mitigating circumstances until after Exam Boards. I would therefore be grateful if you could support us in conveying this message by reminding any of your students who may be affected by adverse circumstances of the University's procedures. This will help to ensure that students are treated consistently.
