Summer Resit Assessments

The Summer Resit Assessments will be held

19 August to 29 August 2019

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).

Students who entered Part 1 from September 2018 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.

Students who entered Part 1 before September 2018 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 here for how to register.

Students who entered Part 1 from September 2018 will be automatically registered to resit their modules during the Summer Resit Assessments.

For students who entered part one before September 2018, 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 5 August 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. 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.

There is no fee for resitting during the Summer Resit Assessments however there is a £50 late registration fee.
