Resit exams

Important information about resit exams

Where you delay an exam or assessment from May/June 2023, you will be able to undertake it at the next available opportunity (see below) under existing regulations.

Where you fail one or more of your modules in May/June 2023, you will be permitted a further attempt to pass the exam or assessment at the next available opportunity under existing regulations.

The next available opportunity for delayed and failed exams and assessments will be the resit period, which starts on 31 July 2023.

Exam formats

Resit exams will take the same format for each module as those for May/June 2023.

If your May/June 2023 exams are in person, you will be required to return to campus for in person exams in August 2023. If your May/June exams are taken online, this will remain the mode of delivery for the August exams.

Professional regulations

Please note that, in some circumstances, courses subject to professional regulation may be required to vary these exam arrangements. If your course is subject to professional regulation, your Division/School will inform you whether any variations are to be applied.

When are resits?

Resits usually take place in the first two weeks of August.

For 2023, resits will be scheduled between Monday 31 July and Friday 11 August 2023.

Do I need to register to resit an exam?

Your exam results letter on KentVision will detail your referral method (ie exam and/or coursework). If you are required to resit exams, you will be automatically enrolled.

If you wish to resit an exam for exemption purposes, you must inform the exams team by the deadline specified in your referral letter.

You must be available for resits, if required. If you are not intending to attend your resit exam, please inform the exams team in writing in advance.

How do I view my resit exam timetable?

Your resit timetable can be found on KentVision and is usually ready around a week before the resit period begins.

When will my resit results be released?

2023 Undergraduate resit results will be released on Friday 8 September 2023.
