Each semester, the Exams & Progress team sends schools a schedule listing modules with a formal exam taking place during the next exam period. The schedule is used to gather information about exam requirements.
The University of Leeds will hold examinations/assessments across a number of periods during 2021. Which period examinations/assessments will take place in will depend on the student’s cohort.
For the academic year 2020/21, there is an expectation that most assessment will be online (i.e. digital and electronic submissions). However, some assessments will necessarily need to take place on campus (e.g. performances, laboratory work, etc.).
On the exam day
For on campus examinations, there are procedures in place to help deal with any unusual or special circumstances that may arise on the day of an examination.
Ad hoc exams procedure
Ad hoc examinations are formal University exams, managed by the Exams Team, that occur outside main examination periods. Specific procedures relate to these exams.
