Different fees can apply to some subjects, e.g. Social Work repeat placements, PGCE practical teaching resits and research students.
- Yes, if your School allows that, but you must register by the published deadline. See the Examinations section of the Student Services - Service Development website for details on how to do this, which modules are excluded and where you might be able to take your exams. There is an additional fee for this as well as the resit fee, which can be paid through the Portal.
- Information on submission deadlines for assessed work will be displayed via the My Progression tab on the Portal.
- Your School should have notified you of any action they have taken as a result of a claim for ECs, but if they have not, you should contact them in the first instance. It might be appropriate to appeal – see the question below.
The Education Advisers in the Students’ Union offer help and advice if you are considering appealing or submitting late claims of extenuating circumstances. Contact details for this service are found online.
