Main Examinations May 2018

Examinations* will take place from 08 May to 25 May 2018 (with the provision to additionally schedule exams on 02-04 May if necessary).

Email notification of individual timetables will be sent to students on Monday 12 March 2018. The schedule will be uploaded to this webpage at the same time.

Claims for Extenuating Circumstances Based on Religious Observances 

If you are claiming ECs for a religious holiday which is recognised by the University, you will need to complete the Religious Observance Notification Form and submit it to your School office, no later than 5 working days before the assessment deadline which is being missed.

Fit to Sit Policy

The University operates a 'Fit to Sit Policy' for examinations - this means that by attending your examination, you are declaring yourself fit to take that assessment and any subsequent claim for an EC is unlikely to be approved.

If you fall ill within the examination then you must make an invigilator aware of this and obtain evidence at the earliest opportunity to confirm you could not have continued with the examination. You must also complete a claim for an EC including the medical evidence you have gathered.

Additional Requirements and Arrangements for Examinations

If you have been recommended for additional requirements and arrangements in your exams then you will be contacted directly by your School/Departmental Office.

If you attend at the main exam room you will not be able to receive extra time.

If you require exam adjustments due to a serious and long term disability, health condition or mental health issue and Disability Services are not already aware of this, please ensure you make contact with Disability Services as soon as possible and provide them with evidence of your disability or condition. You can contact Disability Services on disability@hud.ac.uk or ring on +44 (0)1484 472 227. If you do not contact Disability Services promptly, the University will not be able to make any adjustments to your exam(s).
