Examinations form part of your assessment at the University.  This section offers information about dates of examinations, accessing past papers and what to do if you have special requirements or extenuating circumstances.

During exam periods there are 3 examination sessions each day (09:00, 13:30, 16:30) Monday - Saturday. Your examinations may be scheduled to take place on any of the published dates during the examination periods including all three sessions on a Saturday. Where a School/Department holds examinations outside of the University Examination periods, you will be informed of those dates separately.

When are my exams? 

The examination timetable for each semester will be available approximately 6 working weeks before the examinations begin. For the Autumn semester examinations this will be in mid November, and for the Spring semester examinations this will be in mid March. The timetable will also be published on the Exams Office web site in examination code order. Students must access their individual examination timetables from the 'My Course' tab on the Portal to ensure they are aware of when their examinations will take place. Room locations and seat numbers will be published three weeks before the start of each exam period . Please note that once the timetable is published students will be unable to change their examination entries
