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.

August 2014

The exam period runs from Monday 18 to Friday 29 August 2014.

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 2014 must now do so in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Students who have already submitted an application will be contacted after 23 July with their timetable.

How much will it cost?

An administration charge of £50 per exam will be payable to the University. You will receive instructions on how to pay this fee when your timetable is emailed to you. 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 both University and British Council fees before your exam takes place. If payment is not received, the exam(s) will be cancelled.

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.
