    Exam Resits

    Hi

    Ive just been given a resit date for 2 exams in 5 days ! According to University rules and regulations it says the university should give me more than 2 weeks notice before a resit. What should i do ?

    Study.

    Alternatively consult with your course tutor or student services or similar.

    Incidentally, such occurrences were common when I was a cadet (not at Warsash admittedly)

    If its an SQA exam - not a lot the dates are published a year in advance - if its a college exam, chances are they were advertised somewhere.

    As above says, get studying.

    Nothing and count yourself lucky. They're refusing to give us our resits from near the beginning of last phase until nearly a year after the exams were sat!

    As the same thing happened to the FdSc Sept '14 deckies about a month ago...

    Study. Hard.

    If it's an SQA exam that's all you can really do at this point, as normal university regulations don't apply AFAIK.

    If however it's a non SQA exam, you've got a few more options;
    -Speak to Dawn Edwards in Coastguards 022 and ask if she'll help you put a complaint in,
    -Speak to the exams/assessments officer at the hatch in Coastguards,
    -Make your sponsor aware,
    -If anyone else is sitting the exam ask them to do the same.

    That's all I can really suggest at this point.

    Side note - Aren't y'all off for Easter now?...

    @Jstorm - they're doing the same thing for us. Apparently there's "not enough staff" or something.

    "The best in the world"... My arse.
    Sanity was an optional extra that I chose not to purchase.

    The fact many major companies are now shunning WMA tells you all you need to know

    Why were twice as many companies at Warsash open day this year compared to Fleetwooda?

    I got fed some bollox about them not being allowed to do resits until after Northumbria had come over and checked everything in 2017, tried to make it sound like they were doing us this massive favour...

    WMA is nearer to company offices than Fleetwood - You've got SSTG, CMT, Carisbrooke, the RFA and carnival within an hours drive. Maybe an hour and a half if you're doing granny speeds...
