Undertaking reassessment without attendance in your trailed modules means resubmitting the coursework/resitting the examinations. These reassessments will take place by January 2024. Please read the information below for further information on undertaking reassessment without attendance.

Check any changes with your department

You are responsible for checking with your department as to whether the syllabus or assessment for the modules you’ll be reassessed in are due to change next year.

If there are any changes, your department will be able to confirm whether you’ll be reassessed on the old or new syllabus.

Reassessment fees

All resubmission of coursework and resits of exam are offered free of charge.

Exam reassessment

If you need to undertake reassessment in any exams this will be noted on your results page alongside when this examination will take place.

If you are undertaking reassessment in an exam in 2023/24 this will take place alongside the main assessment exam for this module unless you are trailing your reassessment alongside progressing to your next year of study. Students trailing exam reassessment into their next academic year will always undertake this exam reassessment in the January exam period.

Information on when exam timetables will be released and the dates of the exam periods will be updated on the exam dates and timetables page shortly.

Coursework reassessment

  • If you need to submit new coursework, your department will be in touch via email to confirm what you will need to do and your deadline.
  • If you are resubmitting coursework in the 2023/24 academic year, your coursework will be undertaken across the year alongside the module's standard assessment.
  • Students trailing or reassessing in previously trailed coursework reassessment in the 2023/24 academic year will undertake all coursework reassessment across the Autumn Term with submission deadlines in January 2024.
  • Your department will confirm the deadline date and time for your resubmissions.
  • If you’re unable to submit coursework on time, University rules about the late submission of coursework will apply.
  • Please note, the details of your new coursework reassessment will be sent to you by your department. It’s important that you do not create your own coursework titles or reuse previous coursework titles, as these won’t be accepted by your department.

Final Year Projects

If you’re a Final Year student who needs to resubmit Final Year dissertations or projects, please contact your department as soon as possible to find out exactly what areas of the project you need to work on for your resubmission.

Maximum attempts

The Rules of Assessment state that you will not be granted more than three attempts at assessment in a module unless you have accepted Extenuating Circumstances. If you fail a module for the third time, and cannot be offered a further attempt, you may have to carry the fail or could be withdrawn from the University.
