Exam board

Board of Examiners

The task of the Board is to review all student marks. Special factors affecting the performance of individual candidates may be taken into consideration by the Board, but only if the Board is aware of any mitigating circumstances by the deadline of the mitigating circumstances submission. This is a week before the Board is held. The Board awards the MA degree and the MA with distinction, subject to the approval of Senate.
