  • If you are unable to attend an exam at scheduled date/time, you can apply for a Changed Assessment Arrangement by Week 10 of the given semester if it your reason is one of the following:

    • religious observance
    • military service 
    • international/University representation in a sports event
    • similar activities undertaken by a dependent of the student for which there is a demonstrable support requirement on the student

    Notable exclusions: Holidays, weddings, job interviews, work experience and travel arrangements (eg going home).

    Evidence required: A letter from an official of the given authority/organization.

    The changed examination date will normally be within the relevant resit examination session. If you need to change a resit examination date, then an alternative date that enables your progression will be agreed.
