Exam periods and timetable publication dates

There are three examination periods each year and students will be able to view their personal exam timetable ahead of these periods through Minerva.

The exam periods are held at the end of each semester and the resit period takes place before the summer bank holiday in late August.

Exams can be held on any day within these periods, including weekends, so please make sure that you're available for every examination session. You can view your personal exam timetable through Minerva.

Separate timetables may be issued at school level, for example if you are a student in the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry or Healthcare.
