Exam Rechecks

A recheck is simply a re-calculation of all parts of the module mark and there is NO review of the exam content.

Students are strongly advised to be aware of the difference between an exam appeal and an exam recheck and to consult the FAQs on the Appeals page in advance of making an application.

Recheck applications can be submitted only after the full official transcript of results has been issued.


Completed application forms should be returned to the Examinations Office by the relevant deadlines indicated.
Late applications will not be accepted under any circumstance.
