Summer Resit Assessments

The Summer Resit Assessments will be held

17 August to 27 August 2020

Students with an R, M, P, H, S, F, A and T resit indicator are eligible to resit in the Summer Resit Assessment period in August (according to the rules set out in the Examination Conventions).

For August 2020 only there will be no cap on the number of resits students are allowed to take in August.  In addition there will be no charge for resitting modules during August 2020.  

ALL students will be allowed an uncapped resit for ANY module assessed in semester two, whether they have failed it, (automatic H indicator, i.e. resit for a full mark) or passed it, with the exception of where an Unacceptable Academic Practice (UAP) penalty has been applied.  That said, we advise students to consider carefully their resit choices and urge students to consult with their department(s) before making their choices so as not to overburden themselves. 

Please see the University's Coronavirus FAQ webpage for more information on resits, assessments and exams.

NB.  For future Summer Resit Assessments in August, the cap on the number of credits students will be allowed to resit in August will be reinstated, along with the compulsory registration and resit charges as detailed below.



Students who entered Part 1 from September 2018 and students who entered Part 2 from September 2019 will be automatically registered to resit the modules in which they are eligible to resit (up to a maximum of 80 credits) during the Summer Resit Assessments.  As it is compulsory for you to resit in August it will not be possible to withdraw from resitting a module even if you do not need to resit it for progression requirements.  If you are not required to resit for progression the module will remain on your record and if you do not resit it you will not be required to pay.

Students who entered Part 1 before September 2018, and students who entered Part 2 before September 2019 MUST register first. You can do this via Your Record on-line during late June early July.  The Summer Resit Assessment Registration facility will be available to students from the day the semester two results are published for two weeks only.  See how to register.

For students who entered Part 1 from September 2018 and students who entered Part 2 from September 2019 there will not be the option to withdraw from a resit however, students who are not required to resit in order to progress will be able to opt out of paying the resit charge. 

For students who entered Part 1 before September 2018, and students who entered part two before September 2019, if, after registering to resit a module, you decide not to resit,  for whatever reason, including if your department has advised against you resitting it, you MUST withdraw from it by informing the Student Administration Office by the 30 July at the very latest.  Failure to withdraw from a resit, even if you do not turn up for the examination, or hand in your written assessment for the module in which you are registered, will mean that your record will show that you resat and failed and you will still be liable to pay the resit charge. Note that the highest mark obtained in the module will still be counted towards your degree.

In order to withdraw you must email the Student Administration Office of the Academic Registry via with your student details and the code of the module(s) you wish to be de-registered from.

The Rules for Progression and Resits are available online in the Examinations Conventions or in the Students' Examination Handbook (available as a link from the Undergraduate Issues web page, under the Examination and Assessments Information heading). Failure to register for a compulsory resit and satisfy the progression rules will mean that you will not be allowed to enter the next year of your course i.e. you will NOT be allowed to retake failed Part 1 modules while studying in Part 2.

The resit charges for resitting during the Summer Resit Assessments are oulined on the Resit Charges webpage.  Students who fail to register by the deadline will also incurr a late registration fee of £50.
