Spring resits/deferred assessment

Undergraduate resit/deferred assessments for Spring modules take place 23-29 June 2020. Information for postgraduates about their Spring grades and resits is provided at the end of this section.

Autumn resits

When do the resit/deferred assessments take place for Autumn modules?

Resit/deferred assessments take place for Autumn modules between 11- 15 May 2020, although in many cases coursework resit submission dates may have been set earlier.

My other exams have been cancelled, do I still have to resit modules I deferred or failed in Autumn?

Yes. Although all students in 1st and 2nd years have been allowed to progress to continue their studies next year, they still need to obtain the credit for modules, to allow them to gain sufficient credits to progress through their degree programme and ultimately, be awarded their degree.  The format of the examination will now be a remote online test (such as a multiple choice test on Canvas) or an alternative assessment (including short or extended essay type answers, to be answered within a set time period).

When will I know what format these resits will take?

You have already been advised by Academic Registry (Timetabling, Exams and Graduation team) of the date and time that your resit examinations/alternative assessments will take place. The format will be advised by each module co-ordinator by 17 April. If coursework is still to be resubmitted, the nature of the required assessment and the deadline by which it should be submitted will also be confirmed by each Module Co-ordinator by 17 April.

What help is available to me to prepare for resits in this diet?

Your tutors and lecturers should be available via e-mail to answer any questions. If you experience difficulty in reaching them, please contact your Faculty administrator by e-mail.

Many modules have revision sessions already available via Listen Again and some tutors will organise Q&A sessions for the resits. You are strongly urged to take advantage of these opportunities. If you have any queries, module co-ordinators can be contacted via e-mail.

Student Learning Services are running online workshops over the coming weeks; they have excellent resources available on their Canvas website and they offer 1-to-1 on-line support if it is required.

Can I defer the resit?

Yes, you can apply for a deferred resit. The deferred diet takes place on 23-29 June 2020. The deferred examination guidance is available on the website. The criteria have been adjusted to include issues associated with COVID-19.

Spring resits/deferred assessment

My other examinations have been cancelled, do I still have to resit modules I failed in Spring?

Yes. Though all students in 1st and 2nd years have been allowed to progress to continue their studies next year, they still need to obtain credit for their modules, to allow them to gain sufficient credits to progress through their degree programme and ultimately, be awarded their degree. Each Faculty will confirm the format this will take. It is likely that resits will be in the form of coursework, but some remote online tests (such as. a multiple choice test on Canvas) or an alternative assessment (including short or extended essay type answers, to be answered within a set period of time) may take place.

When will I know what format the resits/deferred assessments will take?

You will be advised via Portal and Canvas if you have failed any modules by 29 May 2020. Your module co-ordinators will then confirm the format of the reassessment by the 5 June 2020.

My learning has been affected by the strike and COVID-19 – will the resit cover all aspects of the module?

Modules have been impacted to varying extents by these factors, so your module co-ordinator will confirm the material you should prepare.

I have failed at the first attempt so, given the circumstances, will this be recorded?

No, in the current circumstances, as long as you pass the module through the Spring resit opportunity, the failure at the first assessment will not be recorded on your transcript.

I am a postgraduate student, when will I be given information about Spring module outcomes and resits/further assessment?

Postgraduate students will be contacted by their module co-ordinators within four weeks of their last assessment/examination date, to let them know whether they are required to undertake assessment resits in order to pass the module. If further assessment is required module co-ordinators will provide details of the format and deadlines for this.
