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 2017

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 2017 must now do so in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Those students who have already submitted an application will be contacted by 21 July to confirm approval. The provisional resit exam timetable will be published on 28 July; both students and overseas exam hosts will be emailed the details the following week.

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. 

Should your circumstances change, and you wish to return to Newcastle to sit your exam(s), then you must inform the Exams Office as soon as possible.
