Examination Periods for the Academic Year: 2014/5

The Academic Calendar for the 2014/15 academic year has been published and the following periods have been designated for examinations:

  • Semester/Trimester 1 Examinations will be held from Tuesday 6th January 2015 until Monday 12th January (inclusive)

Examination Timetable

The Examination Timetable for Semester/Trimester 1 examinations in January 2015 will be published on 14th November 2014.

Anglia Ruskin operates a searchable database for you to find out information specific to each of the examinations for any particular module. In addition, students and staff can also access information about examination times and dates via the main Examination Timetable web facility.

Please note that students are responsible for checking the examination timetable to find out their own personal schedule of examinations. We do not currently produce customised examination timetables for individual students. If you are unsure about which of your modules include an examination you can find out by checking:

  • The Module Guide for each module
  • Your e-Vision account (please note e-Vision merely provides information on the week when an examination is due to be held; for exact details of the date and time you must use the main web-based Examination Timetable facility as individual examination dates and times are not provided by e-Vision)

 

Deadlines for Coursework Assignments

Information on the deadlines for the submission of coursework assignments and other non-examination based assessment tasks are NOT provided by this website but are available in your Module Guides or the appropriate Faculty/Departmental Offices.

Examinations Results

Information on how to find out your results is available via our results section. This webpage does not provide information on results for Examinations or other forms of assessment task. These are available via e-Vision in accordance with the official dates for the publication of results .pdf file. To understand your transcript and e-vision record, consult the easy to use Guide to Your Results document.

Conduct of Anglia Ruskin's Examinations

Section 6 of the Academic Regulations governs the conduct of all Examinations held in Anglia Ruskin's name at all locations (including overseas) and students are strongly advised to ensure they are fully aware of these regulations prior to the beginning of the examination period; find further information for students on the examination process.

Details on regulations are available on our Anglia Ruskin's Academic Regulations section.

Mitigating Circumstances

If you are unable to attend an examination due to illness or other serious reasons, you can apply for your mitigating circumstances to be considered and you may be permitted to sit (or re-sit) the examination at a future assessment period. Full details of the mitigation process, including information on the types of documentary required to support any claim for mitigation (eg: a doctor's certificate), are available in our Mitigation section.

Please note that the mitigation process is designed to assist students with serious circumstances which have prevented them from either attending an examination or which have impaired their performance during an examination. It is not designed to be used by students who have failed to ensure that they know the time and date of their examination or who have failed to prepare properly (eg: revise!) for the examination.

Specific Examination Arrangements

If you require specific arrangements because of a disability, medical condition or learning difficulty, you must register this request with a Study Support Adviser no later than ten weeks before the first examination. Requests made after this date cannot be guaranteed and you should consult your Student Handbook for advice. Any request must be accompanied by appropriate medical evidence, an educational psychologist's report or other evidence from a qualified person. Contact the Study Support Service on either our Cambridge or Chelmsford campuses for an appointment with a Study Support Adviser and for further information.

Applications to Sit Examinations at Alternative Location
