Missing an Exam


A zero mark will be automatically awarded for any missed examination.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are constantly available throughout term time and throughout examination periods to sit such examinations. Key academic dates can be viewed via the  The Academic Calendar page.

However, if you miss an examination due to an exceptional circumstance then you may be permitted to resit that examination. In this case, you should, as promptly as possible, inform your Student Office (Email: psyc-studentoffice@soton.ac.uk) about your special circumstance. You will need to submit a Special Considerations form and any evidence relating to your special circumstances which you must supply AS SOON AS YOU CAN. For more information about when you need to submit evidence and examples of circumstances which may be accepted please click here.

PLEASE NOTE: You will also not be permitted to sit an examination if you arrive at the relevant venue too long after the specified admission time. For further information about the exact regulations please click here.
