What do I need to know about the exam period this spring?

  • Most assessments during this period will be held online, with a small number of exams taking place in person.
    • Please check the Examinations timetable for confirmation of whether your assessment will be held remotely or in person.  
  • For online assessments, these have been set up to enable you to take these remotely. Where possible, we recommend planning a space at home to do your online assessment.

However, we recognise that you may not have an appropriate quiet study space, or adequate internet access needed to take your assessments. If that’s the case for you, and you wish to sit your assessments on campus, you can use our dedicated informal learning spaces that have been made available:
Important to know:
  • During the assessment period, some informal learning spaces will be designated as ‘quiet’ spaces to better support you when completing your assessments.
  • These will not be formally invigilated or monitored, and so we ask that all students respect the space and each other during this time.
  • No booking is necessary to access an informal learning space. However, we advise you to plan in advance as much as possible.
  • If you’re coming to campus to take an exam, we recommend arriving an hour ahead of time and check to find the nearest free PC or space you can use with a laptop.
