Your Results and Exceptional Circumstances

Results will be published on different dates depending on your level of study. If after results publication you believe that your performance in your centrally timetabled examinations has been affected by an extenuating circumstance in the summer term, you will have five working days to use the Post-results Exceptional Circumstances process to request to take the examination again. More information on Exceptional Circumstances can be found here

 
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 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.

 

Reassessment

A resit is different to being ‘Deemed Not to Have Sat’ (DNS). A resit is a second attempt of assessment and is offered to students who have failed or are not qualified in the relevant Part, or who have failed a module (PGT). This would appear as a second attempt on your transcript and be subject to capping in classification. 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 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. The deadline for selecting which modules to resit is 16 July 2024.
 
Please note that for non-finalists, you will need to select your resits at the same time as you request a further attempt at examination (DNS) as part of the Post-results Exceptional Circumstances Process. If you have any questions about this process, please contact the Exams Team.
