Important Information Regarding Examinations and other Assessments

Dear Colleagues

Information for students on examinations has been circulated to students and is available at 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 five working 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.

Information on Adverse Weather and its effect on examinations and assessments has also been updated and is available at:

Thank you.
