Information on Resit Examinations 2014

When and where are the resit examinations?

Resit examinations will be taken at the University of Essex and abroad at specific British Council locations, please see the following link for resit abroad information:

The resit timetable will be published by 9 August 2014 on the Exams Office web pages. The timetable will detail the date and time of each resit examination.

·      View and print your exam timetable

·      View any individual exam arrangements that have been put in place for you

·      Report any exam errors to the exams office (e.g. you are not scheduled for the correct exams, you have exam clashes, your individual arrangements have not been put in place etc)

·      View exam FAQ’s

·      View the student handbook for exams

·      View exam room maps and seating plans

 You will need to bring the form with your Registration Card to each examination.

I had Individual Arrangements for my Summer exams, are these still applicable?

Yes. If you received individual arrangements for the main examinations, the same arrangements will apply for the resit examinations.

Can I stay at the University during my resit exams?

If you require accommodation during the resit period, please contact the Accommodation Office.

When are resit exam results published?

The results of the resit examinations will usually be available 2 working days following the Board of Examiners meetings at the following link . If you have not been permitted to proceed you will be informed by letter, at the same time as the results are made available.  If you wish to bring to the attention of the Board of Examiners any extenuating circumstances which have affected the resit examinations, undergraduate students should complete an Extenuating Circumstances Form, which must be returned to the Registry by Monday 8 September 2014, at 4.00pm.  Postgraduate students must complete an Extenuating Circumstances Form, which must be returned to the Graduate Secretary in your Department/Centre by the deadline published by them.  Both forms can be downloaded from our web pages using the links provided above.

What is voluntary reassessment?

Voluntary reassessment web page

Why was my June exam mark reinstated after I took a resit in September?

You were originally given the chance to take a voluntary resit by the June/July Board of Examiners.  However, the mark you obtained in September was lower than your original mark.  As this was a voluntary resit and not a compulsory resit, the Board agreed to reinstate your June mark.  If you are a second year student, you should note that only a maximum of 30 credits can be regarded as a voluntary resit.  So if you had to take more than 30 credits' worth of resits in September the Board could only reinstate a maximum of 30 credits' worth of June marks.
