Faith-provision for all examinations except those assessed by thesis and oral

This allows candidates to apply to the Student Registry for reasonable alternative examination arrangements to be made where the scheduled examination period coincides with a student’s religious observance. Students must submit a completed self-declaration form to the Student Registry, by published deadlines, countersigned by the College.  The Student Registry will consider the application and either attempt to amend the timetable or, where this is not possible, discuss alternative arrangements with the College.  Where faculties and departments prepare their own timetable, we shall pass the information on for them to consider in accordance with the policy.

The deadlines for 2023/2024 are as follows:

University Examination Period Deadline for receipt of form
Lent term 2024 Monday 16 October 2023
Easter term 2024 Monday 13 November 2023
Medical and Veterinary 2nd MB Exams (September 2024) Monday 10 June 2024

Making a request for Examination Arrangements for students on Undergraduate and certain Postgraduate courses

There are guidelines for staff on how to apply for Examination Arrangements for students on Undergraduate and certain Postgraduate courses obtainable by following the link below. We also prepare guidelines for students too and these are included below for your information.

The Postgraduate courses include the Master of Business Administration, Master of Finance, Master of Law, Master of Corporate Law and Master of Advanced Study. Following the dissolution of the Board of Graduate Studies from 1 October 2020, this guidance also applies to the MPhil by Advanced Study, Master of Research, Master of Education, other Master of Studies degrees and the Certificate of Postgraduate Study (CPGS) and Postgraduate Diplomas in Economics, Legal Studies and International Law. If you are not sure if this guidance applies, please email for advice.

Making a request for Examination Arrangements for other Postgraduate courses (Research programmes) 

Please note that this section refers to arrangements for the oral examination and refers to examinations for the MPhil degree (by thesis and oral only), MLitt degree, MSc degree, PhD degree and the Certificate of Postgraduate Study.

The Accessibility & Disability Resource Centre (ADRC) will make recommendations for access arrangements where requested by Degree Committees for students who have disclosed a disability via existing mechanisms or via disclosure directly to the ADRC (normally as a result of initial application disclosure). Where a degree committee requires advice or recommendations from the ADRC in relation to appropriate examination access arrangements, a request should be emailed to the ADRC.

It should be noted that recommendations from the ADRC are advisory. The Degree Committee or Postgraduate Committee may decide whether recommendations are appropriate and reasonable.

The college tutor needs to email their request for an examination arrangement to the Exams team, acting on behalf of the Postgraduate Committee. A medical note from the students' GP, counsellor or college nurse will be required if the application is being made on medical grounds.

The application also needs to be made on CamSIS (refer to the Online guide - Exam Access Arrangements - CamSIS Training).

The Exams team will let the college and all interested parties know the result of the application once the request has been considered.

Adjusted Modes of Assessment (AMA)

The Adjusted Modes of Assessment (AMA) process is for students where standard reasonable adjustments available do not adequately address the specific, substantial disadvantage experienced by a disabled student.

The Code of Practice: Access and Inclusion for Disabled students should be consulted and can be found here. This should be considered alongside the resources below. 

The deadline to receive AMA applications by for the Academic year 2023-24 is the end of week 7, Friday 24 November 2023.

Guidance notes and the application form have been updated for the Academic year 2023-24. Please read the guidance notes to understand changes made to the AMA process.

AMA Guidance notes for Faculties and Departments 2023-24 can be found below:
