Overseas Resit Exams

Newcastle University allows those students who have a permanent home address outside of the UK to take resit exams in a British Council, or equivalent office, in their home country during January, May/June and August exam periods. Students should complete the online application form, which will be available via this page at appropriate times of the year, before the given deadline. Full policy details can be found here http://www.ncl.ac.uk/quilt/assets/documents/qsh-assmt-offcampus-policy.pdf

It is important that you check the list of exams which are exempt from this procedure, as you will have to sit these exams on campus in Newcastle.

How do I apply?

Applications to take resit exams in January 2016 have now closed. No further applications can be accepted.

How much will it cost?

An administration charge of £50 per exam will be payable to the University. The University fee should be submitted with the application using the webstore. The British Council will also charge a fee for invigilation and use of their premises. Fees differ between offices. Contact your chosen British Council office for information on local charges. You must pay the British Council fee before your exam takes place.

Students with fee exemptions

Some students on exchange programmes or with extenuating circumstances are exempt from payment. Please complete the on-line enquiry form at https://my.ncl.ac.uk/students/contact for further information or if you believe that this applies to you.

What happens if I don’t take my resit exam?

If you do not take an overseas resit exam which has been arranged for you, you will receive a mark of ‘0’. The same rules apply to all exams whether they are held on or off campus.
