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.

Semester One 2016/17

The exam period runs from Monday 16 to Friday 27 January.

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

Those students who have already applied will receive an email confirming their exam details in the week following the publication of the final 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.

Future Dates

Semester Two 2016/17 - the application form to take resit exams in May/June 2017 will be available between 6 February and 3 March 2017.
