As you are probably aware, there is a planned Tube strike due to take place this week.

The University appreciates that if the strike goes ahead it may cause disruption for students and staff, therefore, we are planning  to follow our “exam-related procedures in the event of severe disruption to public transport”, as detailed in the University's Academic Regulations.  

  • If the strike goes ahead then morning exams on Thursday 9 July will start and finish 30 minutes later than scheduled (start at 10:30am)
  • The timings of afternoon and evening exams will not change and will start and finish at the scheduled times
  • You will be admitted to the exam room up to one hour after the start time of the exam; however, no additional time will be allowed. This is applicable to all exams – morning, afternoon and evening
  • You will not be admitted to any exam more than one hour after the start of that exam
  • You will not be permitted to leave the exam room (other than where accompanied by an invigilator) until one hour after the start of the exam
  •  If you arrive late, the invigilator will note the time of your arrival on the student attendance sheet.

Students should make every effort to ensure that they arrive on time and are strongly advised to investigate alternative travel arrangements if the disruption is likely to affect their normal journey to the University. Please consult the Transport for London website for regular updates on the day.

Please note that if the strike is called off all exams will start at their scheduled time and students will only be admitted to an exam for up to the first 30 minutes.
