Fees and Appeals
This section describes how to pay any re-examination
fees and how to find out more about deferred assessment
requirements and appeals.
Failed Assessments and Fees
The re-examination fee is £50 per failed
module, irrespective of whether you have failed one or more
elements of the assessment, e.g. written paper, assignment, test,
oral etc. Re-sit fees are non-returnable. Cheques should be made
payable to 'York St John University'.
Students re-sitting assessments will not normally have an
entitlement to academic advice and guidance on their re-assessments
unless they have collected or made formal arrangements to receive
written tutor feedback on their original assignments. Faculties
will contact students about re-sit arrangements, but the extent of
the academic advice for modules re-taken externally is limited.
Students who have failed to submit assessed work and are not
eligible for re-examination will be required to repeat the module
and pay the full module fee, £240.
Deferred Assessments and Fees
If any module assessment has been deferred as a response to
mitigating circumstances or illness, there is no
re-examination fee. It is expected that all Semester 1
deferred assessments will be completed by the April re-examination
period and all Semester 2 deferred assessments by August
