Examination Regulations

All students should familiarise themselves with the College Regulations for Internal Students and Regulations for Degrees. These are available online at: or in the Birkbeck College Library.

No student who has provided false or misleading information about him or herself will be allowed to sit exam papers.

Examination Notification

Students will be notified of their exam timetable by the Examinations Office – however you must confirm your module choices on the MyBirkbeck website in order to ensure that you are registered for the appropriate exams. The Examination Timetable is set centrally by the Examinations Office. It is your responsibility to make sure that you obtain time off work for your examinations. Students who require special arrangements for examinations, should contact the Exams Office well in advance.

Withdrawal from Examinations

A candidate will only be allowed to withdraw an entry to an examination for a particular module if a mitigating circumstances claim is accepted, or where written approval is given by their personal tutor. The candidate must discuss the withdrawal with their personal tutor and then complete an examination withdrawal form to be authorised by their personal tutor no later than 14 days before the first exam of the exam period. Absence from the examination without a withdrawal authorised by the Department will result in zero marks in that examination and will count as one attempt.
