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 are available.

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.

August Resits 2016

The exam period runs from Monday 22 August to Friday 2 September 2016.

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

Students who failed assessment last academic year and are eligible to resit exams in August 2016 must now do so in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Students who have already submitted an application will be contacted week commencing 1 August with their timetable.

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.
