Regulations and conduct incidents

  • The University has established regulations, policies, procedures and guidelines governing assessment that are in line with the Equality Act 2010. It is the responsibility of staff and students to follow them.

    Consult the  Before the exams and On your exam day sections for more information on important regulations and procedures, including alternative provision.

    Conduct incidents

  • Visit the conduct incidents section of the student page for more information. 

    Module leader consultation, marks and M3 forms

    The module leader is contacted in the week following the exams in cases of suspected cheating (e.g. writing on the body, paper notes, electronic materials as part of the disciplinary investigation) to help indicate whether the student had an unfair advantage.


    • The exam script is marked as normal and this mark provided to the exams team - a temporary 'DD' grade is uploaded in the marksheet. 
    • Once the conduct investigation is complete, an M3 form will be issued via the SEC chair to adjust the DD grade.
