January examinations (UPDATED - 7 JANUARY)
Examinations are due to take place in person in January at the University Arena unless current UK Government guidance changes. You should therefore prepare to be in attendance for these examinations. The University Arena has excellent mechanical ventilation and in addition we have arranged for large gaps between each desk in the hall.
Lateral flow tests and face coverings
Please take a lateral flow test before attending an examination. You can easily order home kits online or collect them from the reception at the St John’s or City campuses.
All students will be asked to wear a face covering, unless you are medically exempt, once you enter the building.
If you have Covid symptoms or a positive lateral flow test
If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or a positive lateral flow test, please do not attend your examination. You should instead immediately self-isolate and, if you have symptoms, arrange a Covid PCR test.
You will then be given a reassessment opportunity. You will need to complete a Mitigating Circumstances claim in the usual way and can use a PCR test result or a positive lateral flow test email notification dated on, or shortly before, the date of your exam as evidence. If you do not complete a Mitigating Circumstances form you will still have the opportunity for reassessment but your grade will be capped.
If your lateral flow test result is positive:
- Report the lateral flow test result to the following website www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result (and request the email notification). If you miss an exam due to a positive test, you will need this evidence to claim mitigating circumstances
- Report in the normal way to the University of Worcester on your SOLE page
Your exam timetable
You can view your personalised timetable by logging in to your SOLE page.
Please be aware that you will need to bring your university ID card with you for all exams. You will also need to check your personalised timetable again before the day of your exam as it is vitally important that you are aware of your desk number for each exam session.
If you are entitled to additional support during your exams, you will be contacted individually with details of the arrangements.
If you have any questions regarding examinations after reading the guidance then please do not hesitate to contact the Exams team on firstname.lastname@example.org
