Examinations

There are first year examinations for AM101 and AM102. Depending on the fourth option module chosen, there may be a further exam.

All second year options require students to sit a two hour examination. Students need to answer two questions from a choice of ten.

Year abroad work is fully assessed and there are no examinations.

Final year Special Subjects are assessed by a three hour examination if students are submitting a linked dissertation or a two hour examination for those who are not submitting a linked dissertation. The Special Subject exam paper varies from module to module but may include at least one compulsory ‘gobbet’ question.

Final year Advanced Options are assessed by a three hour examination if students are submitting a linked dissertation or a two hour examination for those who are not submitting a linked dissertation. Students answer two or three exam questions from a choice of twelve.

Students should note that they are not able to repeat, in an examination answer, a substantial body of work already submitted for ANY other summative piece of work (eg a long essay or dissertation).

The exam timetable is published by the Examinations Office, part of the Academic Office, usually at the end of April. Details of the timetable and more specific dates on its publication can be found here. Once the exam timetable is finalised, students are able to access a personalised exam timetable through the Start.Warwick system.

There are many resources to assist students with their exams:
