1. Overview

Deferred examinations are available for mid-semester and end-of-semester exams, whether the exam is written, oral, theory-based, practical, or online.

You can apply for a deferred exam:

  • if there are exceptional or unavoidable circumstances, or
  • as a one-off discretionary request.

All deferred exam requests must be submitted no later than five calendar days after the date of the original exam.

If your application is successful you can sit your exam at a scheduled later date.

For more information about deferred examinations, read the Examinations Procedures.

If you have an existing or long-term medical condition, we encourage you to seek advice from your faculty, school or Student Services well before your exam and before submitting any deferred examination applications.
