Who is allowed to register for External Repeat Exams?

External repeat exam registration is not envisaged in the new marks and standards and so is being phased out.

  • ​Students who started their current programme in September 2016 or later will always be on the new rules, and cannot repeat externally.
  • Student who started in 2015 or earlier, and who have been registered continuously, may repeat externally if external repeat registration is available for their modules.

In practice, this means:
