RESIT TIMETABLES 2014

If you are resitting exams in September - either on campus or overseas - please note that your personal exam timetable will be available from 8 August 2014 at https://www.essex.ac.uk/examtimes.  Until that date, we are only able to confirm that your exams will take place between 1 and 5 September 2014.

RESIT CHOICES

If you have a choice of outcomes or modules to resit, please pick one from the online exam results system by 22 July 2014.

OVERSEAS RESITS

If you wish to apply to resit exams overseas, please fill in this form by 22 July 2014.  We will confirm whether your application is successful by 5 August 2014.  If successful, we will then send you a link to pay the 450 overseas resit fee online.  The 450 fee is not per exam - it covers all exams you need to resit in the week of 1-5 September.

You still need to click the "confirm your reassessments" button on the online exam results system.  You can click "Pay Later" as the 40 module reassessment fee is included in the 450 overseas resit fee.  If you have already paid the module reassessment fee it will be deducted from the balance outstanding.
