Update due to impact of the Coronavirus

City announced on 15 March that the university will end face-to-face teaching by Monday 23rd March and would, where possible, make changes to assessments planned for the rest of the academic year.

The exam timetable will therefore no longer be published on 20th March as planned for the main exam period 4-29 May 2020.

This position on assessments (including exams) is different across Schools, notably in the School of Health Sciences and the School of Law. Please read and make sure you understand the detail related to your School below.

Assessments, including examinations, planned for the remainder of the academic year that require students to come in to the University will not take place for programmes in Cass Business School, the School of Arts and Social Sciences, and the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering.  They will be replaced by alternative forms of assessment.

Alternative forms of assessment for City Law School students will be made available wherever possible.  In-person examinations for Academic Law programmes based in Northampton Square (LLB, GELLB, GDL and all LLMs) will be replaced by alternative forms of assessment. There are additional considerations for students on programmes of professional study based in Grays Inn (LPC, BPTC). The School is working with professional bodies in order to agree the requirements for these assessments and will confirm arrangements as soon as possible.

Alternative forms of assessment for School of Health Sciences students will be made available wherever possible; however, there are additional considerations for clinical skills and practice-based assessments. The School is working with professional bodies in order to agree the requirements for these assessments and will confirm arrangements as soon as possible.

City Exams

As a student here at City, you may need to sit written exams as part of your assessments, along with completing coursework and tests in class. As the City Exams team, we are here to help you with any exam-related queries you might have.

Our role is to manage and organise City, University of London's main examinations as well as a number of 'exception' examinations (usually held outside the main examination periods: e.g. Study Abroad, GDL and some MBA/EMBA exams).

We also organise examinations for students who require special or alternative arrangements.

Departments sometimes organise their own in-house examinations or tests outside the main examination periods. If you are not sure who is organising your examinations, your Programme Handbook or Course Officer will be able to assist you. Your department will also help you with any enquiries relating to results, progression, coursework or transcripts.

If you can’t find the answer to your question on this page, you can get in contact with us.
