Exams and assessments are a major part of studying at university so we’ve compiled a list of things you need to know.
The Regulations for the Conduct of Examinations can be found at: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/media/livacuk/tqsd/code-of-practice-on-assessment/appendix_D_cop_assess.pdf.
The Notes for Guidance of Examination Candidates can be found at: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/media/livacuk/student-administration/exams/documents/Notes,for,Guidance,for,Examination,Candidates,JAN,2017.pdf
We recommend that all students taking exams read and digest this important information.
If you have any queries about the exams, please contact the examinations team on firstname.lastname@example.org or contact your academic department.
We have well-established processes in place to deal with situations where students, through no fault of their own, have missing marks or have assessments affected by extenuating circumstances. Our procedures work on the principle of fairness and no detriment to the student, and the relevant examinations board will consider all cases at the end of the academic year.
If you think your performance in an examination or assessment was affected by illness or other unforeseeable circumstances you should submit an Extenuating Circumstances claim with appropriate evidence to your department or school. Make sure you check the deadline by which any claim must be submitted with your department or school – the expectation is normally within five working days. Information about the Extenuating Circumstances Policy can be found at: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/media/livacuk/tqsd/code-of-practice-on-assessment/appendix_M_cop_assess.pdf. Further guidance on the policy and the types of evidence which may be considered is available at: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/media/livacuk/tqsd/code-of-practice-on-assessment/appendix_M_Annex1_cop_assess.pdf.
