Modular Examination Committee Sub-Committee

Role of the MEC Sub-Committee

The sub-committee meets to consider and review exceptional cases where either the UMP regulations or the subject rules have not been met and the subject would like extenuating circumstances to be taken into account so that an award can be made. The sub-committee will meet before the main MEC meeting and will report its discussions in summary to MEC for comment.


Membership of MEC petition sub-committee will be as follows:

  • Pro-vice Chancellor (student experience) (chair)
  • Head of Taught Programmes Team (clerk to the MEC)
  • Chief External Examiner (2)
  • Two members representing the MEC

The term of office for the representatives will be 2-3 years, reflecting a range of 'interests' in terms of awards and faculties.
