Taking modules outside of your Part

If you are taking a module (with an exam) from outside of your Part, the exam will be held within the exam period for the Part to which the module belongs.

This may mean that your exam clashes with teaching - for example, if you are a Part 1 or Part 2 student and are taking a finalist module, your exam could be held in week 2 of the Summer Term. In this situation you are expected to attend the exam; however, you are not permitted to miss teaching in order to revise.

If you are a Finalist taking a non-finalist module, your exam may be held after the Finals exam period, and this may lead to a delay in you receiving your result.

Scheduling of exams

Exams are typically held Monday - Friday during mornings and afternoons. Exams may also be scheduled during early evenings and on Saturdays, but are not normally held on Sundays or Bank Holidays.

The University expects all students to prioritise their exams by being available for the entirety of the relevant exam period for their level of study (and, if taking a module from outside their Part, also for the exam period for the Part to which that module belongs).

If you are unable to attend an exam due to a significant event that cannot be rescheduled please follow the extenuating circumstances procedure.

Publication of personal exam timetables

Personal exam timetables for Summer 2021 will be published on students' individual RISISweb portals by early April 2021 and we will email students when it is ready to view.  You will be able to login to the RISISweb portal to view your exam timetable under the 'Programmes and Modules' tab.  If you have any trouble viewing your timetable, please contact
