Frequently Asked Questions and Venue Maps

Extenuating Circumstances

Students who believe that religious reasons or participation in elite-level sport prevent them from sitting an examination at the scheduled time or venue should contact their Personal Tutor and Student Support Team. Their case is considered by the relevant Dean and Student Administration in consultation with the Convener of the Board of Examiners. Further information regarding flexibility which may be offered to students taking part in elite-level sport is provided in the Performance Sport Policy:

Please note:

  • As examinations may be scheduled at any time during the semester, it is a student's responsibility to be available throughout the semester, including the whole of the examination diet. Occasionally assessments may need to be rescheduled with very little notice. If special circumstances mean that a student is unavailable for the rescheduled assessment, Boards of Examiners may consider using an alternative method to assess the relevant learning outcomes (Assessment Regulation 17.3).
  • Other than online assessment, students are not allowed to sit examinations away from Edinburgh (Assessment Regulation 25.5)
  • Factors which may adversely affect your performance in an examination or in assessed coursework over the year, such as personal illness or the illness of a close relative or partner, must be drawn to the attention of the examiners in writing by you as soon as possible and, in any event, before the meeting of the Board of Examiners. This is usually done via your Personal Tutor or Postgraduate Programme Director.
