Newcastle University allows those students who have a permanent home address outside of the UK to take resit examinations in a British Council, or equivalent office, in their home country during January, May/June and August examination 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 2013
The examination period runs from Monday 20 May to Friday 7 June 2013.
Applications to take resit examinations in May/June have now closed. No further applications can be accepted.
Students wishing to apply to take resit examinations overseas during August will be able to do so at the beginning of July.
Where can I take my resit examinations?
Examinations must be taken in British Council offices which are established and reliable examination 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 examination will be payable to the University. You will receive instructions on how to pay this when your application has been approved. 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 examination takes place. If payment is not received, the examination(s) will be cancelled.
What happens if I don’t take my resit examination?
If you do not take an overseas resit examination which has been arranged for you, you will receive a mark of ‘0’. The same rules apply to all examinations whether they are held on or off campus.
