Students are reminded to note examination entry deadlines for each year. The University will acknowledge receipt of all entries by email but this may take up to 10 days due to the high volume entry forms being submitted. It is crucial that you submit your examination entry form by the deadlines for examination entry.
Undergraduate programmes - examination entry
The deadline for registering for examinations is 1 February for May/June examinations.
Postgraduate programmes - examination entry
The deadline is:
- 1 February for May/June examinations and
- 1 August for October examinations.
Even though you register as an student it does not mean you are automatically entered for your examinations. You have to apply to enter.
Examinations are usually held world-wide at a number of examination centres (either through the local Ministry of Education or the British Council). The examination timetables are drawn up each year after all the examination entry forms for a particular degree have been received from the Examination centres world-wide. Arrangements for an ad hoc centre are not made.
The standard of the examination for the degrees is the same as that for students studying at a college of the University. Upon graduation you will be awarded a degree which will be classified according to the marks you have obtained.
The standard of examination for the diplomas is the same as that for the first year of the related degree (some diplomas also have introductory subjects). Upon successful completion, you will be awarded a diploma which has been graded based upon the marks you have obtained.
Information about receiving your examination results will be released online.
Please take the time to read the section titled ‘Assessment Offences and Penalties’ in your programme specifications and regulations, and read the 'Rules for examinations' which are provided to you alongside your admission notice.
Contravention of the programme regulations may result in your case being considered under the Procedure for consideration of allegations of assessment offence [PDF 7pgs 230KB]. Penalties available under this procedure range from a formal reprimand through to a zero mark for the examination, or termination of registration in extreme cases.
