Confirmed exam timetables for the coming semester will be published late next week. Teaching Week 12 – used as a revision week by some Schools – will commence on 14 May 2018, and the exam period will commence on 21 May 2018 as originally intended.
Colleagues may be aware that last December the University agreed to scope the potential to bring exams forward by a few days directly in response to requests from staff for more marking time. The student body was represented in those discussions and recently an indicative timetable developed.
However there is no wish to clash with activities scheduled in Week 12/ revision week this year, so the exam period will proceed on 21 May.
We apologise sincerely for the confusion and we will continue to look at the issue of creating more marking time in the exam periods with staff and student consultation through usual representative channels for 2018/19.
