Publication of resit results and PGT (Masters) results: next steps
Results will be published on the dates as indicated below. If after results publication you believe that your performance in your centrally timetabled examinations has been affected by an exceptional circumstances in the resit period, you will have five working days to use the Post-results Exceptional Circumstances process to request to take the examination again.
If you are not clear what your results mean you should speak with the named contact in your School/Department. They can help guide you and discuss what you can do if you have any concerns about your results.
For any students who were granted to be ‘Deemed Not to Have Sat’ (DNS) in their examinations prior to the resit exam period but subsequently chose to take their exams then please note the marks from that exam will be included in your overall results calculation.

What if my results from the resit period are showing as not yet available (RYNA) by the relevant date set out above?
This can happen for a number of reasons such as late submission of an assessment or an unavoidable delay in marking. If your overall result states Results Not Yet Available (RNYA) then please seek academic advice from your School/Department as soon as possible. If you are unsure whom to contact, please ask your Support Centre (or Henley Helpdesk or ISLI Admin Office).
Please note that you still have the option to request to take the examination again through the Post-result Exceptional Circumstances Process for modules where you do have a result even if your overall result for your Part or Degree is showing as RNYA.
What if I missed one or more examination due to an exceptional circumstance?
If you have missed one or more examinations in the resit period due to an extenuating circumstance then you will be able to submit a Post-results Extenuating Circumstances request, explaining why you were unable to sit the exam, following publication of results.
Post-results Exceptional Circumstances requests
If after results publication, you believe that your performance in your centrally timetabled examinations has been affected by an extenuating circumstance in the resit period, you will have five working days to use the Post-results Exceptional Circumstances process through RISIS. The Post-results Exceptional Circumstances process is a temporary revision to the existing Exceptional Circumstances Policy for the Summer Term and Resit Period 2021; these revisions are published in a separate document.
If you decide to request your result to be DNS and therefore request a further attempt through the Post-results Exceptional Circumstances, and it is granted, your earlier module mark will then be updated and appear as 0 DN.
Your decision to request DNS will have important implications if it is granted. Please note the next opportunity to sit the examination will be Aug/Sept 2022 examination period. If granted the DNS, your further attempt will replace your earlier mark. This means that your original mark will be deleted and will be replaced by the mark for your further attempt, even if it is lower. You do NOT get the better of the two marks and the mark of your further attempt will count even if you fail. It is important to note that once a further attempt has been requested and granted, you cannot then choose not to do the examination. A mark of zero will be given for any examination not sat. This is a particularly important consideration if you have already achieved the grades that will allow you to progress or complete your degree.
Evidence should be submitted at the same time as your Post-results Exceptional Circumstances request, or within ten working days of the publication of results if this is not possible. If you cannot provide evidence, you will have the opportunity to explain this on the form.
It is important that you do not make any decisions until you have sought academic advice from your School/Department.
Please read this guidance carefully and discuss your results with your School/Department representative as soon as possible within these five working days to give you enough time to make the best decision. We want to make sure you receive the best academic advice possible before you make any decisions. Your School/Department will give you personalised, programme-specific advice on the best course of action, including advantages and disadvantages of requesting DNS.
Information about who will be available to speak to and when during these five working days will be sent to you by your School/Department in advance. However, if you are still not sure whom to contact then please contact your Student Support Coordinator, or the HBS School Office/ISLI Helpdesk as appropriate.
We encourage you to discuss your results with your School/Department representative as soon as possible within the five working days if you are considering requesting ‘Deemed Not to Have Sat’.
When do the five working days start?
The five working days start after the release of the results (i.e., the date of the original result email sent to the student from the Exams Team). The five working days will expire at 11.59 pm (BST) on the fifth working day after results publication and it is your responsibility to work out when your five working days end.
Please note that if you were sent subsequent result emails due to a mark change or the resolution of a Result Not Yet Available mark, your five-day time frame will still be from the first email you were sent notifying you of your results. If you are sent a subsequent email after the five-day timeframe and wish to submit a Post-results Exceptional Circumstances request against a revised mark, please contact your Student Support Co-ordinator.
Please see the following table showing the five working day period:
|If your results were released on (i.e., the date of the email from Exams):||Then the five working days will expire at 11.59 pm (BST) on:|
| Thursday 15 September 2022
||Thursday 22 September 2022|
|Thursday 10 November 2022||Thursday 17 November 2022|
To give you enough time to make the best decision, it is very important that you seek academic advice as soon as possible after you receive your results if you are considering requesting DNS. Please refer to the Post-results Exceptional Circumstances Policy information for further guidance.
A resit is different to being ‘Deemed Not to Have Sat’ (DNS). A resit is a second attempt assessment and is offered to students who have failed or are not qualified at the first attempt in the relevant Part, or Postgraduate students who have failed a module at the first attempt. Where you take a resit this appears as a second attempt on your transcript and will be subject to capping when your degree classification is calculated. If you have already been offered a resit and fail a module at the second attempt, you will not be allowed a further attempt at the assessment. For undergraduate students this means that if you do not meet the requirements to progress to the next Part of your degree at the second attempt then you may have to leave the University.
For more details about resits please refer to Section 28 of the Assessment Handbook for more information.
Non-finalist undergraduates or students on an Integrated Master’s programme
Non-finalist students registered on an undergraduate programme or an Integrated Master’s programme have a right to re-assessment, on one occasion only, if they have failed or are not qualified in the relevant Part and will automatically be offered a resit for the next available exam period.
Postgraduate taught students
Students registered on postgraduate taught programmes have a right to re-assessment, on one occasion only, in any module which they have failed and will automatically be offered a resit for the next available exam period. The exception to this is the dissertation module where the right to resit is restricted (see Section 28.6.3 of the Assessment Handbook).
Undergraduate and Integrated Master’s programme finalists
Finalist students registered on an undergraduate programme or an Integrated Master’s programme only have the right to resit where they have failed their degree overall. Please note that where a finalist is eligible for resits, their overall classification will be capped at a Pass degree, with the exception of Integrated Masters, Mpharm Pharmacy, BSc Architecture and BSc Speech and Language Therapy.
How will I be offered my resits in a failed module?
Non-finalist students who have failed or are not qualified at first attempt will be offered the opportunity to select resits either via a link in your results email or via a subsequent email from the Exams Team. Details about selecting your resits will be included in these emails.
If you have already been offered a resit and fail a module at the second attempt, you will not be allowed a further attempt at the assessment. For undergraduate students this means that if you do not meet the requirements to progress to the next Part of your degree at the second attempt then you may have to leave the University.
