Exam timetable

Please make sure you check the timetable carefully and regularly before your examination(s).

We understand that a move to alternative assessments, and different arrangements to face-to-face examinations, is a change to what you were expecting and it may be challenging for some students. The University is committed to supporting you during this time and has created an Assessments Student Guide to answer some of your questions.

Examination clashes

If you discover that you have two examinations on the same day, or an 18:00 exam followed by a 10:00 exam the following day, please inform your Course Office as soon as possible. They will liaise with the Examinations Office who will contact you before the start of the exams to confirm your arrangements.

Religious observance

There may be times during examination periods when the observance of your faith prevents you from taking exams at specific dates or times.

In cases such as these City will, wherever practicable, make alternative arrangements for you to sit the examination.

You must apply for special arrangements to be made in these circumstances.

For information on the application procedure please consult the Religious Observance webpage.
