External Examiner reports should be submitted within four weeks after the date of the Exam Board and/or work was reviewed.
Examiners who appear to be late in submitting a report will be contacted by the
Quality and Academic Development team initially as a prompt. All undergraduate
reports relating to June or July Boards of Examiners meetings should be
submitted by the end of August at the latest and postgraduate reports
relating to November or December Boards of Examiners meetings by the end of December at the latest.
report has not been received by the deadlines, and the Quality and Academic
Team are unsuccessful in further requests for the reports, the Pro-Vice
Chancellor (Education) will write to the examiner concerned with a further
reminder. If this is unsuccessful consideration will be given to terminating the examiner’s appointment on
the grounds that the specified duties have not been fulfilled.
Reports must be submitted
within three months of the examination board to be considered 'received', since
reports received after this point can no longer contribute meaningfully to
other quality assurance mechanisms.
