Assessment Periods

See also:


During each academic year there will normally be three assessment periods during which formal examinations will be held, namely:

Mid-sessional assessment period: 6 - 18 January 2014
Sessional assessment period: 12 May - 6 June 2014
Supplementary assessment period: 13 – 23 August 2014

By referring to your College Handbook, you will be able to learn when the formal examinations for individual modules will be held, whether in January or in May/June.

Some subject areas offer intensive modules, taught over two weeks, particularly during the final year of advanced initial degrees.  Details will be printed in your College handbook.

Due to the nature of some programmes, particularly in the College of Medicine and the College of Human and Health Sciences, the teaching pattern is different in that modules are taught in very concentrated periods of possibly two weeks. Such modules are assessed immediately after the teaching and therefore the assessment periods mentioned above are not applicable. You are advised to consult your College Handbook in these instances.
