Exams and assessments

Exams and assessments should be a fair test of your knowledge and what you are able to do. For some students, the usual exam format may not be suitable and, if this is the case, reasonable adjustments can be made. 

We make decisions about reasonable adjustments for students based on the supporting documents you provide. We need time to review these documents and to discuss with you, either at an online or on campus appointment or via email, prior to the absolute Exams Office deadlines for reasonable adjustments. These deadlines are as follows:

  • Semester 2 resits Friday 27 May 2022
  • Semester 1 Friday 2 December 2022

You should contact Inclusive Support prior to the above deadlines to ensure that your request is submitted. Please email us for further information or to request reasonable adjustments for exams.

Coursework extensions

Oxford Brookes encourages all students to plan their time and meet deadlines, however sometimes you may find it impossible to meet a deadline for reasons beyond your control. If this happens, you can contact your Module Leader, Academic Adviser or Student Support Coordinator for advice on applying for Exceptional Circumstances.

The Inclusive Support Service can assess your needs based on the supporting documents you provide us and may be able to include coursework extensions as part of your Inclusive Support Plan so that you do not need to apply for Exceptional Circumstances for ongoing conditions and other disabilities. This must be done prior to your coursework deadlines.
