Re-assessment Procedures

Referral: A referral is a further attempt permitted by the examiners, following initial failure of an individual module, at the assessment(s) or examination(s) for that module. There is no requirement to repeat attendance. The module mark following a referral is capped at the pass mark of 50% (postgraduate). For any assessment, candidates have a right to be referred on one occasion only. Where the Board of Examiners decides there are adequate grounds, such as medical reasons or exceptional personal circumstances, it may allow a deferral (i.e., re-assessment without the mark being capped), or permit a further referral.

In the event of any piece of work being referred it will be returned to the programme member with instructions from the programme administrator. More details can be located in individual programme handbooks.
