Exams and Assessments

Be prepared for all aspects of taking examinations, including timetables, attendance and conduct.

Exam timetables

Your exam timetable will include: Date and time, venue, type of exam and will be displayed here before every Exam.

Prepare for your exams

Make sure you have everything in place to maximise your opportunity for success and avoid any additional stress. You can also find support from Counselling Committee.

If you need further support, it may also be possible to organise examination adjustments. You can also find past examination papers and additional study spaces to help with your exam preparation.

Conduct in examinations

All examinations are conducted under HSE regulations, and a breach of these will be considered as grounds for academic misconduct which may include the termination of a year program of studies.

Attendance

Failure to attend an examination on the given date will be regarded as a non-attendance and, in the absence of extenuating circumstances, a zero mark will be awarded.

If you are unable to take the exam due to sickness or other extenuating circumstances, notification on or prior to the day is required. As soon as you are aware of any difficulty in attending an examination you should contact your DCO. Please note that you will be required to complete the application for extenuating circumstances and provide documentary evidence in support of your claim as soon as possible and no later than five working days after the examination.

If you have applied for extenuating circumstances prior to an examination which are deemed valid and subsequently decide to sit the examination, your paper will not be marked.

Once you have taken your exams, find out when you can expect your results.
If you need to take a re-assessment, find out what is involved or find out how our compensation procedure works.
