As the Summer Vacation Assessment Period approaches, we’ve put together our top tips and information you need to know to make sure you’re all ready to take on your resits.

As the Summer Vacation Assessment Period approaches, we’ve put together our top tips and information you need to know to make sure you’re all ready to take on your resits.

When is the Summer Vacation Assessment Period?

The Summer Assessment Period is Monday 22 August to Friday 2 September 2022. A timetable for the period will be released in mid-August alongside online exams and other deadlines for some schools. This will be confirmed no earlier than Monday 15 August.

If your exam was originally completed in-person, you should expect the resit to also be in-person, and you will be expected to attend on campus.

Do I have to pay for resits?

If you are taking a First Sit, Uncapped Resit, or Deferral of Assessment, there is no charge.

If you are taking standard resits, there is a charge. The cost depends on the course credit value and weighting of the course.

Once you have been registered for your resits, an invoice will be billed to your account which can be accessed through the Finance tab on Campus Connect.

When do I get my results?

Undergraduates

Your results will be released on 15 September on Campus Connect. If you have passed, you will progress and enroll as normal. If you do not receive the required results, you need to contact your school to discuss your options.

Postgraduates

You will receive your results alongside your final results in the Autumn term.

What if I have extenuating circumstances?

You can apply for Extenuating Circumstances for your summer assessments. The deadline for undergraduates is Monday 5 September 2022 and Monday 26 September 2022 for PGT September starting students apart from Social Work.
