Assessment boards

What does an assessment board do?

The Assessment Board is convened to make recommendations on student progression, award, award of credit or withdrawal from a programme of study as a result of academic failure. It makes such recommendations through its consideration of student results. The Assessment Board also considers the findings of any Extenuating Circumstances Panels and Academic Misconduct Panels.

The duties of and processes for running Assessment Boards are outlined in the Assessment Regulations. After the Assessment Board the results and decisions of the Board are checked and signed off. No results can be disclosed until after this process has taken place.

Assessment board dates

The assessment boards will normally be held as soon as may be convenient after the completion of the Assessment.

Release of results

When are results released?

The results will be released as soon as possible after the Assessment Board. We try our very best to get the results out within 10 working days of the date of the Board.

How are results released?

Undergraduate Programmes

Initially, the results will be released via Moodle. Students are sent an email link to access these when they are available. For results that are released as provisional this will be all that is issued. You can of course ask for a hard copy by filling in the transcript request form. For results that are final the email will be followed up by a hard copy sent to you in the post.

Specialist Masters Programmes

  • Term 1: Provisional transcripts will be released on-line.
  • Term 2: Your Course officer will notify you by letter, accompanied with your interim transcript of results.
  • Term 3: Your Course officer will notify you by letter, accompanied by your final transcript.
