RE-SITS: Important message about conduct and academic integrity

We expect the highest level of academic integrity from every member of our community. You should have completed the KnowHow tutorial on academic integrity to ensure you are fully aware of what this entails and why it is so important.

Whether you are taking online re-sit assessments or in-person re-sit examinations on campus, please consider the following points in particular.

You should not:

  • make use of or copy material or the papers of another student
  • obtain or try to obtain, directly or indirectly, assistance in your work outside of that provided by your tutors,
  • give or try to give, directly or indirectly, assistance to any other student
  • use generative artificial intelligence tools such as ChatGPT during PC exams. You must only access web resources which are permitted as part of the assessment. Website access during online examinations is monitored. For guidance on the University position on the use of generative artificial intelligence tools within coursework assignments please visit: Student Briefing: Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technology in Summative Assessments (
  • impersonate another student or knowingly allow yourself to be impersonated.

In the event that a module coordinator suspects a student of having breached these regulations, the matter may be referred for consideration under the University’s disciplinary procedures. It is important to familiarise yourself with our Code of Practice on Assessment.

Travelling to campus in time for assessments

Formal re-sit assessments are an essential part of your education and you will be expected to attend any scheduled in-person (in an exam room on campus) assessments unless you are prevented from doing so by illness or other extenuating circumstances.

Ongoing rail strikes have the potential to cause disruption to your travel if you are not already in Liverpool, so please bear this in mind and plan appropriately. You can check the latest information on the National Rail webpages.
