Summer Resit Assessments

The Summer Resit Assessment period will run from:

Monday 9 August 2021 to Thursday 26 August 2021


August 2021 only

There will be no fee for resits taken during the August 2021 resit period due to the ongoing disruption caused by the pandemic.

Students with an R, M, P, H, S, F, 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). 

All undergraduate students will be automatically registered for resits in August 2021. 

There will be no cap on the number of credits allowed to resit in August and registration will be automatic.  Students who fail more than 80 credits and students who fail 20 credits or fewer will be able to decline August resits.  Students with more than 80 credits of fail who choose to decline the August resits will be required to repeat the year.  Students who have the option to decline their resits MUST decline by completing the Summer Resit Assessment task on their student record. 

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 resit charges as detailed below.

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

August 2022 onwards

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. There is a resit charge fo all modules with an R, P, F and A resit indicator.

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 you are eligible to resit (up to a maximum of 80 credits) during the Summer Resit Assessments period in August.  Students who fail 20 credits or less and are not required to resit for progression requirements will be able to decline August resits by completing the Summer Resit Assessment task on their Your Student Record on-line.  The Summer Resit Assessment task will be available to students from the day the semester two results are published for two weeks only.  Failure to complete the task and decline 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.   

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 Student 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.  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.

To withdraw from a resit you must email the Student Administration Office of the Academic Registry via ugfstaff@aber.ac.uk with your student details and the code of the module(s) you wish to be de-registered from by no later than the 30 July.

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.
