  • there is a clash in your exam timetable.
    Students are responsible for notifying Student Services of any clash in their examination timetable within five working days of the examination timetable release.

Assessment special consideration

An Application for Assessment Special Consideration is to be completed by students who are seeking academic special consideration for assessments based upon exceptional circumstances having an impact upon their academic performance.

Supplementary exams

Please ensure that you check your results (via MySSNT) as soon as they are available. If you have been granted a supplementary exam/assessment it is your responsibility to be aware of this, and be available during the secondary exam period.

Supplementary exam/assessment (HE only)

If a student has attempted all the assessments items for a subject and records a final mark from 45% to 49%, or if the student has been granted special consideration, the student may be allowed to attempt a supplementary assessment, unless the subject specifically precludes supplementary assessments.

If the student's final mark is below 45%, they may be granted a supplementary assessment at the discretion of the Exam Committee (e.g. if the student has submitted a special consideration application).

Students must pass their supplementary assessment to be granted a supplementary pass (SP) for the subject.

Important reminders about exams

All students are required to sit their examination at the scheduled date and time irrespective of any conflict with a planned holiday or special event. If a student believes they may have a case for not being able to sit their scheduled examination, they may submit an Application for Assessment Extension at least a week before the exam date.

Students are responsible for finding out their examination times, and for ensuring they are ready at least 15 minutes prior to the published start time.

Students are responsible for notifying Student Services of any clash in their examination timetable within five working days of the examination timetable release.

Students who arrive up to 30 minutes after the published start time will be permitted to enter the examination room, but will not be allowed any additional time to complete the examination.

Students who arrive more than 30 minutes after the published start time will not be permitted to enter the examination room and will receive a zero mark for that examination.

All students must bring with them, and display on their desk, their College ID card. If they fail to do so, they must provide an alternative form of photographic identification such as a passport or driver’s license. If a student does not provide acceptable photographic identification, they may not be permitted to sit the examination, at the invigilator’s discretion.
