If you're unsure what a 'referral', 'deferral' or 'condoned pass' is, or are confused about what you need to do next, we've put together some guidance below to help.

If you have any questions after you've read the information below, get in touch with your Registry Office.

Module status - Passed

If you have achieved a 'Passed' status for your module(s), congratulations you do not need to take any further action at this time.

Module status - Condoned Pass

If you have achieved a ‘Condoned Pass,’ module credit has been awarded and you do not need to take any further action at this time.

A Condoned Pass is only available to undergraduate students undertaking modules at Levels 3 and 4 and only if course specific regulations allow for condonement. The maximum volume of condoned credit that may be awarded to a student at each of Levels 3 and 4 is 40 credits. See Section 17 Undergraduate Framework.

A student may not be re-assessed in a condoned module.

Module status - Incomplete

If you have a status of 'Incomplete' for your module(s) then you have not met the pass mark for the module, not achieved a qualifying mark for an assessment component or had mitigating circumstances accepted for non-submission of work. In all cases, please take note of which assessment component you have been referred or deferred in.

Assessment component status - Referred

If you have been 'Referred' in coursework(s) you must firstly check the module Blackboard site, or your Registry Blackboard site where referred coursework will normally be posted on or shortly after the formal publication of results. If the coursework is not available you should contact the module leader to confirm what you will be required to do.

The final submission deadline for all referred coursework is Monday 27 July 2020. If you have been 'Referred' in an online timed assessment please note that all online timed assessments will take place between Friday 17 July and Friday 24 July 2020. If you have been referred in an In Class Test, this will take place between Monday 13 July and Thursday 16 July 2020. 

It is important to note that if referred your assessment component mark will be capped at 40% for undergraduate modules and 50% for postgraduate modules.

Assessment component status - Deferred

If you have been 'Deferred' in coursework(s) you must firstly check the module Blackboard site or your Registry Blackboard where deferred coursework will normally be posted on or shortly after the formal publication of results. If the coursework is not available you should contact the module leader to confirm what you will be required to do.

The submission deadline for all deferred coursework is Monday 27 July 2020. If you have been deferred in an online timed assessment please note that all deferred online timed assessments will take place between Friday 17 July and Friday 24 July 2020. If you have been deferred in an In Class Test, this will take place between Monday 13 July and Thursday 16 July 2020.

It is important to note that if you have been deferred in any assessments, and have not had any previous referrals or retakes within the same module, your overall module mark will not be capped as you will be taking the assessment as if for the first time. If you have been both referred and deferred within the same module, however, your assessment component mark will be capped at 40% for the undergraduate and 50% for postgraduate for the item you have been referred in.

Module status - Failed; Retake

If you have a status of 'Failed; Retake' for any of your modules this means you will be required to register to retake this module with full attendance in the next academic year and attempt all items of assessment. Core modules must be retaken and in most cases will automatically be registered for you. Option modules may be replaced with another choice. Your Registry will contact you with further information about how to register modules for next year.

Module status - Failed; No Retake

If you have a status of 'Failed: No Retake' for any of your modules you have exhausted all opportunities to pass this module, and the Registry will be in contact shortly with further information.

If you do not hear from the Registry a week after publication of results, please contact us at the address below.

Module status- Deferred Module

If you have a status of ‘Deferred Module’ this means all items and the module will be deferred, the module will be registered new in the next academic session.

Module status - Held

If you have a status of ''Held' you are awaiting the outcome of an academic misconduct investigation and the Student Regulations Team will be in touch with you shortly.

Interruption of studies

If you suspended your studies for any period this academic year, any modules which will not count towards your degree will be marked as ‘Suspended’ in the status column; you are not required to do any further assessment for these modules. For any modules that do not have a status of Suspended, the above information applies.
