You must attempt all assessments at the first opportunity.
You must do each assessment (essay, project, report, portfolio or examination) for every module. You should do this even if you don’t think you can fully complete them.
You do not have an automatic right to resit or to repeat a year of study.
An Assessment Board (which meets at the end of the academic year to look at all your marks) will decide whether you can resit or repeat study. The Assessment Board will take into account whether you have attempted all assessments. It is much more likely to give you an opportunity to take resits or repeat study if you have attempted all assessments. It is less likely to give you this opportunity if there are some assessments which you did not attempt at the first opportunity.
If you feel you are at risk of not being able to attempt any assessment, you should contact a member of academic staff (module teacher, programme leader or personal tutor) for further advice before the hand-in/examination date as there are a variety of ways in which support can be given.
In addition we have a frequently asked questions page on assessment and feedback.
