Assessment and examination period

The assessment and examination period on the schedule is the period towards the end of a semester during which module tutors schedule assessment deadlines and remote timed tests. It's important that all coursework deadlines set by your module tutors are adhered to. If you feel that you need some extra time for an assessment, please review our extensions and mitigating circumstances information.

It's important that you continue to attend any scheduled sessions during these weeks and access support for your studies as and when you require it. All our professional services are available during this period to support you in your studies. If you have any queries, please contact us via Apollo.
