Exams and assessment
Completing resits and reassessments
How do I know if I need to complete reassessments/resits?
Results will be confirmed after the meeting of the Progress and Award Examination Panel.
Please use your e:Vision account to check your results to see whether you have failed any modules and need to resit. Information setting out reassessment requirements will be provided by your School and is normally available on Moodle.
If you fail a module at first attempt, you must be available for resit opportunities as scheduled. You are expected to attend resits (such as examinations, practical demonstrations, presentations, performances) and to meet resit deadlines for handing in assessments.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to contact your School regarding your reassessment arrangements.
If you have any queries about your results and what you must do to progress to the next year, please contact Registry staff immediately for advice on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important reassessment information

Different rules apply for progression and reassessment depending on which assessment scheme applies. Your e:Vision account will confirm whether 'Scheme A compensation scheme' or Scheme B condonement scheme' applies to you.
