Absence from Examinations or Summative Class Tests

Absence from Examinations or Summative Class Tests

If you are absent from an examination or summative class test (i.e. a formal test that contributes a percentage weighting toward the course unit mark) you must let the School know by informing the Assessment Team in AMBS (D14), Telephone: 0161 306 3409 or Email: assessment.ambs@manchester.ac.uk.

Any absence from an examination or summative class test without good reason will result in a mark of zero for that paper.

Make sure that you correctly note the date/time/place of your examinations. Failure to read the examination timetable correctly will not be deemed as an acceptable reason for absence. It follows that a mark of zero will be recorded in these circumstances which may jeopardise your prospect of reaching the pass mark for the course unit and the possibility of you failing the programme.
