During Period 1, 2 and 3, assessments will be held remotely where possible. In most cases, exams will be conducted in alternative formats to allow you to complete them remotely. This may include replacing unseen, timed exams with open-book exams, or alternative forms of coursework.
Take a look at our article Guidance for Online Assessments at King's for more information on the different assessment methods.
Important to know: There may be some exceptions where assessments cannot be held remotely, for example, if you are on a professional programme. Your faculty or department will confirm this with you.
The university has 3 examination periods across the academic year. For 2020-21 these are:
Period 1: Friday 8 January - Friday 15 January 2021
Period 2: Tuesday 4 May - Friday 4 June 2021
Period 3: Monday 9 August - Friday 20 August 2021
Important to know:
It is your responsibility to know the date and time of your exams. Misreading your timetable is not a valid excuse for missing an exam.
On occasion some exams might fall outside the main periods listed above. Please ensure that you know when your assessments will take place and if you are at all unsure, please check with your department or faculty.
