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.

Semester Two 2015

The exam period runs from Monday 18 May to Friday 5 June 2015.

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

August 2015

Students wishing to apply to take resit exams overseas during August will be able to do so from 30 June 2015.

Where can I take my resit exams?

Exams must be taken in British Council offices which are established and reliable exam centres. The British Council have offices in many cities around the world, please check their web site for addresses and contact information.

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.
