Forgotten ID in an exam

  • Students are required to present their valid and undamaged Brookes ID card in every exam. If you do not have it, you must complete and sign a green no ID form provided by an invigilator during the exam.

    Your PIP will be blocked until you can confirm your identity to Student Central. You need PIP to see your exam results. 

    Note: PIP pages can also be blocked if a student has failed to pay a fixed penalty fine. In this case, you must pay the fine or agree a payment plan in order to get your PIP unblocked.

    How to get your PIP unblocked

    This is the preferred method to get your PIP unblocked.

    1. Report to Student Central with your valid Brookes ID card – the photo, student number and end date for your programme must be visible and valid.
    2. You will be asked to re-sign the green no ID form to ensure that you were the person who sat the exam.

    If you have lost your Brookes ID card, you can replace it at Student Central or through the online shop, and follow the steps above to unblock your PIP.
