Resit examinations

When the resit exam timetable is published, a link to your personal resit exam timetable will be sent to your Essex email account. This will show the date and time/duration of each exam, and whether the exam is remote or in-person.

For remote exams, your personal exam timetable will include the link to the relevant platform (FASER, Moodle or Perception). Where exams are held in-person, it will show your room and seat number - and you will also be able to download your exam entry form, which you will need to prin and take to every in-person exam.

You can report any errors with your exam timetable by using the link within the exam timetable system (e.g. if you are not scheduled for the correct exams, you have exam clashes, your individual arrangements have not been put in place etc.).


A charge will be made for each module that requires a re-examination or re-submission of coursework, as follows:

Resit Fee
Per module £50
Masters dissertation re-submission £120
PhD £145

If you are required to pay a fee, you can pay your resit fee online. If you have not paid the fee before the payment deadline, an invoice will be raised against your student account and you will have 14 days to pay. Please note that you will not be able to register for your next period of study or graduate if you have debt on your account.

If you are an undergraduate student experiencing financial difficulties, you may be able to apply for the
Resit Assistance Fund.

Individual exam arrangements

If you have individual exam arrangements approved by the Student Wellbeing and Inclusivity Service, they will remain in place for all exam periods during the academic year, unless you change course or start a new course.


You can book short-term accommodation on campus for in-person resit exams, subject to availability.

Resit results

The results release dates will be published on the exam results schedule, when available.

Extenuating circumstances

If you wish to bring to the attention of the Board of Examiners any extenuating circumstances which have affected the resit examinations, please complete the claim form on My Essex by the deadline date.
