Timetable changes

Changes can occur to the timetable, therefore please ensure that you recheck your exam details on a regular basis and immediately prior to your examination(s).

 

Disability Exam Support

All students entitled to extra time will be accommodated in a separate/smaller venue away from the main exam halls. This will allow students to work uninterrupted by the exit of large numbers of students where they will be provided with dedicated invigilation.

If you have been granted additional time for your exams, this will only be permitted within separate or smaller venues (generally within the Tower or Dalhousie Buildings, as per your adjustments).

Exam candidates who are entitled to extra time but choose to attend an exam in the main venue (e.g. Sports Centre, Bonar Hall, Accountancy Lecture Room, main Tower IT Suites) will not be entitled to extra time in that venue. Please make sure that you attend your exam at the correct venue as per your individual timetable https://exam-timetable.dundee.ac.uk/exam/Login.aspx.

If you no longer intend to sit examinations in a separate venue or wish to sit in the main venue without your allocated extra time, please contact Disability Services disability@dundee.ac.uk  so that they can amend your adjustments and inform the Examinations Office of your decision.

If you have a separate or smaller room as part of your exam adjustments and you are unable to attend your examination, please let us know by contacting the Examinations Office examinations@dundee.ac.uk.

 

Deadlines for Exam Adjustments

A deadline is in place for students to arrange additional exam support. This is to help ensure that suitable arrangements are in place for all candidates and their examinations.

If you feel that you may require additional support for your exams, please ensure that you register with Disability Services https://www.dundee.ac.uk/disabilityservices/contact/  in good time and ahead of the deadlines listed below.

Please note that it may be difficult to obtain an appointment close to these deadlines so we would advise getting in touch with Disability Services as soon as possible.  Additional support for exams must be agreed and documented on your student record by the date of the exam adjustments deadline, prior to each examination diet.

The University has a comprehensive mitigating circumstances guidance and application process for anyone who is experiencing situations which may temporarily or permanently prevent or impair performance in an assessment.

 

Mitigating Circumstances - Unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances

It is your responsibility to report mitigating circumstances that may have had a significant negative impact on your performance in an assessment or examination, or caused you to miss a deadline for submission of an assignment. 

Schools will normally consider making appropriate allowance for unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances which affect your attendance and performance when they are aware of them.

Find out how to complete the application form and guidance for consideration of mitigating circumstances.
