Scheduling of exams
Exams at the University occur all year round, you can find the key dates for 2016/17 examinations by clicking on the link Examination Dates and Deadlines 2016-17
You may find it helpful to know more about the main assessment period and the process for timetabling your examined modules. The University issues the dates of the examination period at the beginning of the academic year so that you can ensure that you will be free throughout the examination period and to plan your revision. For further information, see the Guide to How We Schedule Exams.
Your individual exam timetable will be published prior to the Easter break to give you a reasonable period of time in which to prepare for your examinations. Your timetable will be published on e:Vision and sent to your UEA email. Should you have any issues with your timetable, please contact your Hub.
If you have informed us that you require individual arrangements for your exams, these are also taken into account in scheduling your exams. If you have requested an individual arrangement, you may get an email which tells you your arrangements are 'to be announced', this is because you will get another email at a later stage informing you of your individual exam arrangements such as a different location where you will sit your exam.
