Newcastle University allows those students who have a permanent home address outside of the UK to take resit examinations in a British Council, or equivalent office, in their home country during January, May/June and August examination periods. Please refer to the Overseas Resit Examinations webpage for further details.
The final Semester Two examination timetable is now available.
Inform the Examinations Office as soon as possible, either by completing the online Enquiry Form or visiting the Helpdesk, Level two, King's Gate. You can also contact your School Office if your module registration is not correct.
Yes, examinations have been scheduled for Saturdays 25 May and 1 June 2013.
Past examination papers online are available on campus only. If you are off campus try using the Remote Application Service. Once logged onto that with your usual login and campus password, click on the "IE for on-campus web pages" icon in the Communications and Browsers section.
You must bring your University Smartcard to all of your examinations and place it on your desk for the invigilator to see. If you have lost your Smartcard then you must bring some other form of photographic ID with you, ie your driving licence or your passport. As from January 2009 the ID of every examination candidate must be confirmed by invigilators. Therefore, if you do not have your Smartcard or alternative form of official photographic ID, you will be required to report to one of the checking stations in order to confirm your ID. Checking stations are situated at the following locations:
King's Gate, Level two (Level one for Saturday exams)
Castle Leazes Reception
University Sports Centre Reception
Please note that any University Smartcard left in an examination venue will be returned to the Exams Office by the invigilator, then taken to the Robinson Library for collection.
Students suffering a temporary injury, or condition likely to affect their ability to take examinations in the normal way, are advised to complete a PEC form (Personal and Extenuating Circumstances form). This form should be submitted to your School Office for the attention of the PEC Committee.
If you are ill before or during your examination then you must obtain a Doctor's note as soon as possible. This should be submitted, along with a completed PEC form (Personal and Extenuating Circumstances form), to your School Office for the attention of the PEC Committee.
Where weather conditions make it impossible for you to travel back to Newcastle, or attend a particular examination, you will be able to apply to sit the examination at an alternative time, providing you can produce a copy of a weather report and/or travel warnings which cover the relevant route and time frame. To do this you must complete a PEC form (Personal and Extenuating Circumstances form).
The Examinations Office does not notify students of their results, but you can access your transcript on S3P.
The exam centre number is 40655.
