It is a University requirement that minutes are kept of Programme Examiners' Meetings. The template below offers guidance on the minimum information which should be included in Minutes of Programme Examiners' Meetings:
If you have any requests for modules which must be synchronised or scheduled for a particular slot in the examination timetable, it is important that you notify us as early as possible. Timetabling for the summer exam period begins in late January each year.
We do our best to accommodate all requests, but sometimes conflicting demands and timetable constraints mean we cannot meet everyone's requirements and therefore we can offer no guarantees.
The finalised summer exam timetable will be published in late March/early April. The resit timetable will be published in early August.
If you have any timetabling requests for the Summer exam period, please email email@example.com before 20 January.
If you have any timetabling requests for the August resit exam period, please email firstname.lastname@example.org before 14 July.
